Study finds that bilateral hernias should be operated on at same time

Posted on January 31st, 2012 No Comments

A study conducted in Switzerland has shown that there is no benefit in delaying the second hernia repair surgery associated with a bilateral total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia.

The study included roughly 6,500 patients and examined several surgery methods and recoveries. It was determined that it is more beneficial for the patients to undergo both hernia repair surgeries at the same time. The length of the bilateral repair surgery was approximately 19 minutes longer than a unilateral repair surgery.

Although there was a slight rise in potential complications, it was outweighed by the opportunity to avoid two separate surgeries, hospital visits, and recovery times. The study is heavily favorable of both surgeries taking place simultaneously.

The surgical mesh, AlloDerm, is commonly used in hernia repair surgeries. This mesh has been linked to severe side effects after surgeries. If you have developed a serious side effect after the use of AlloDerm, please contact  the AlloDerm lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
