Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Impact of absorbable sutures in inguinal hernia repair on hernia recurrence and post operative outcome [ Time Frame: two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Absorbable sutures efficacy will be assessed according to:severity of post surgical pain(using NRS-Numerical Rating Scale measure),hernia recurrence (assessed by physical examination during the follow-up period) and other post surgical complications such as nerve entrapment,hematoma and stich granuloma
