Background. The aim of this paper is to analyze respectively the results of 117 operations of crural hernioplasty of which 88 executed with ''tension free'' technique (84 with plug and 4 with mesh) and 19 with Bassini technique.
Methods. A follow-up was carried out on 90 patients at 1 week, 3 months and 1 year.
Results. Recurrence rate was 0 at 1 year on the 88 patients operated with ''tension free'' technique and on 2 operated with Bassini technique.
Conclusions. The method of the ''tension free'' technique for crural hernia and its present validity are underlined notwithstanding its limits for the possibility of complications connected with the use of the plug. These complications have not been observed by the authors but reported in the literature. An alternative technique to the use of the plug is also reported.
