If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Management of recurrent inguinal Hernia

This article "Open peritoneal versus anterior approach for recurrent inguinal hernia: a randomized study" is very interesting, unique and fascinating. It is difficult to collect and randomize those patients. Unfortunately, the rate of recurrence is too much high compared to 1% or less in other previous articles. The repair for recurrent inguinal hernia is one of the most difficult operations. The operators are demanding to thinking the way of repair based on the previous surgeries. Considering these issue, the arthors should document the previous way of repair and review the reason of high recurrent rate of inguinal hernia.
