The Trans REctussheath PrePeritoneal (TREPP) mesh repair was introduced in 2006 to decrease the risk of postoperative inguinal pain in hernia surgery. For the repair of a recurrent inguinal hernia after a primary TREPP an alternative open anterior route (Lichtenstein) may seem the most logical option, but coincides with an increased risk of chronic postoperative inguinal pain. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of a second TREPP procedure to repair a recurrent inguinal hernia after an initial TREPP repair. The hypothesis was that the technique is possible and does not lead to an increased risk of postoperative pain.
The study aims at detecting possible differences between an open (Lichtenstein) and a video-assisted (TEP) technique in treating recurrent inguinal hernia. The differences monitored are further recurrence and chronic pain as well as primary complications.
