Aim. The aim of this retrospective study is to confirm the use of Trabucco technique for inguinal hernioplasty, one of the best “tension-free” technique.
Methods. From January 2001 to June 2003 a total of 99 inguinal hernias, all treated by the same surgeon with the Trabucco technique, are studied.
Results. No recurrences, or major complications were observed in the follow-up. Minor complications (ecchymosis, seroma, superficial wound infection, inguinal pain) were 8%. Life standard style was adopted 2 weeks after discharge by 90% of the patients and 80% of the patients returned to work 4 weeks after discharge. The aesthetic outcome was very good.
Conclusion. The follow-up is short but the Trabucco technique is recommended for its superiority and effectiveness in comparison with traditional techniques.
