Translated title of the contribution: Complications of endovideosurgical repair of inguinal and femoral hernias

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


On the basis of an experience with 1800 operations of endovideosurgical hernioplasty in patients with inguinal and femoral hernias, the authors analyze the frequency and character of complications after such operations. Complications were noted in 37 (2.05%) patients. The most frequent complication was injury of the vessels. It could be liquidated in all the cases using laparoscopic technology. In three cases hollow organs were injured. In these cases laparotomy was used. The laparoscopic hernioplasty, if all details are fulfilled thoroughly, is a minimally invasive and effective method of treatment of inguinal and femoral hernias. The frequency of recurrences after these interventions is considerably less than that after traditional operations.
