Abstract

Background: A hernia is an abnormal protrusion of a viscus or a part of it, through the wall that contains it but without a breach in the
body surface. The present study was conducted to compare lichtenstein technique with Rutkow–Robbins and Gilbert double layer
techniques in inguinal hernia repair.
Materials & Methods: 45 cases of inguinal hernia of both genderswere divided into 3 groups of 15 each. Group I patients were managed
with Rutkow-Robbins Repair, group II with Gilbert double repair and group III with Lichtenstein operation. Parameters such as side,
anaesthesia used during operation, operation time, hospital time, return to work, recurrence and complications etc. were recorded.
Results: Group I had 8 males and 7 females, group II had 9 males and 6 females and group III had 5 males and 10 females. Right side
was involved in 6 in group I, 10 in group II and 7 in group III and left side in 9 in group I, 5 in group II and 8 in group III. Anaesthesia
used was GA in 2, 4 and 3, LA in 3, 2 and 4 and SA in 10, 9 and 8 in group I, II and III respectively. The mean operative time was 53.2
minutes, 60.4 minutes and 52,9 minutes, hospitalization time was 2.7, 2.3 and 2.1 and return to work was 25.6 days, 24.1days and 23.8
days in group I, II and III respectively. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Early complications were seen in 2, 3 and 5 and late
in 3, 4 and 3 in group I, II and III respectively. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05).
Conclusion: Among Rutkow–Robbins, Gilbert double layer techniques and Lichtenstein technique of inguinal hernia repairs,
Lichtenstein technique found to be the most useful method in terms of short operative time and hospitalization time.
