ABSTRACT

Background: Ventral hernia repair is the most common and usual procedure which applies various treatment approaches.

Aim: To compare the laparoscopic ventral hernia repair surgery with open surgical procedure.

Study design: Prospective comparative study

Place and duration of study: Department of Surgery Unit-II, Fatima Memorial Hospital, Shadman Lahore from 1stJuly 2016 to 1st March 2021.

Methodology: Ninety six patients who underwent either open or laparoscopic surgery. They were divided in two groups. Group A (n=40) was of open surgery and Group B (n=56) was laparoscopic. Patients’ demographic and clinical information was documented, postoperative pain, wound healing, duration of hospital stay, and recurrence rate was also recorded.

Results: There were 43 males and 53 females. The mean age of patients was 52.2±14 years. The mean fascial defect size was 6.94±0.3 cm2. Majority of patients were obese. The postoperative study analysis revealed no wound infections and reduced hospital stay in laparoscopic operated patients than open surgery operated cases.

Conclusion: Laparoscopic surgery is much safer and more efficient than open surgery protocol for ventral hernia repair in context to wound infection and postoperative complications.
