laparoscopic hernia sac high-ligation
- has a high recurrence rate laparoscopic hernia sac high-ligation and the lateral umbilicus ligament covering the hernia opening
- The investigators developed a method of laparoscopic hernia repair by applying a new concept in hernia repair. The hernia opening was tightened, and hernia opening region repaired with a lateral umbilicus ligament in a tension-free manner. This method combines the advantages of a secure repair achieved by the open method with the minimal invasiveness of the laparoscopic method. The investigators hypothesized that the lateral umbilicus ligament covering the internal hernia opening region after the laparoscopic purse-string knot would result in lower recurrence and the same operation relative complication.

|Actual Study Completion Date :||December 2010|
the patients were subjected laparoscopic purse-string knot for closing the internal hernia opening
the lateral umbilicus ligament was used to cover the internal hernia opening after the laparoscopic purse-string knot
- recurrence rate [ Time Frame: five years ]The outcome was recorded at the outpatient visits 10 days, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years and 5 years after the surgery.
- degree of postoperative pain [ Time Frame: one year ]The outcome was recorded at the outpatient visits 10 days, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years and 5 years after the surgery.
- patient satisfaction. [ Time Frame: one year ]The patient satisfaction was scored similarly (unsatisfactory = 0, satisfactory = 1, good = 2, and excellent = 3). The long axis of the testes was measured.
