Abstract

Chronic post-operative inguinodynia occurs in about 10 % of patients undergoing inguinal hernioplasty with prosthesis; it is characterized by a broad pleomorphism of symptoms, including relative to individual variability of algic perception. Its intensity can also potentially jeopardize patient's work and social activities. The most notorious cause of inguinodynia is neuropathy, resulting from the involvement of one or more inguinal nerves (iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal and genitofemoral nerves) in fibroblastic processes, or from nervous stimulation, caused by prosthetic material on adjacent nervous trunks. The aim of our study was to provide a comparative analysis between outcomes of wide nerve resection vs. nerve sparing.
