Abstract [en]

Objective: To compare outcome of unilateral and bilateral laparoscopic hernia repair. Design: Prospective consecutive trial. Setting: University hospital, Sweden. Subjects: 380 patients who had unilateral hernias repaired laparoscopically and 64 patients who had bilateral hernias repaired. The median (range) age in the two groups was 56 (21-86) and 61 (30-85) years, respectively and the median (range) follow-up was 42 (24-58) months. Main outcome measures: Operating time, hospital stay, complications, and time to recovery. Results: The median (range) operating time was 70 (25-240) minutes in the unilateral and in the bilateral group 113 (55-330) minutes. The complication rate, recurrence rate, and time to full recovery did not differ between the groups. Conclusion: The laparoscopic approach seems to be a good option for patients with bilateral inguinal hernias.
