  • Laparoscopic hernia operation
  • Hernia mesh operation
Active Comparator: TEP
Laparoscopic operation with preperitoneal nonfixated mesh

Detailed Description:

Prospective randomized study comparing total extraperitoneal patch TEP versus open onlay mesh according to Lichtenstein in primary unilateral inguinal hernias in men between 30 to 75 years of age. Non fixated polypropylene mesh is used in the TEP operation and fixated light weight polypropylene mesh is used in the Lichtenstein procedure. The aim is to study chronical pain and sexual dysfunction. Clinical examination according nerve function, hernia status and genital findings are performed together with a questionnaire including SF36, Inguinal Pain Questionnaire(IPQ), sexual function are registered preoperatively, one and tree years postoperatively.
