Complications in Inguinal Hernia Surgery
Complications in Inguinal Hernia Surgery - a Nationwide Registry Study

Inguinal hernia repair is the most common procedure in general surgery. Even with acceptable complication rates, thousands of patients worldwide suffer from inguinal hernia surgery complications every year. In Finland, the National Patient Insurance Association (NPIA) receives reports from surgical complications. In this study, the database of NPIA is used to compare the complication profiles of open and laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery with mesh. In addition, a reference material of uncomplicated laparoscopic hernia procedures is collected from North Karelia Central Hospital to search for factors predisposing to severe laparoscopic complications.
