AbstractBackground: Groin hernia is an uncommon surgical pathology in females. The efficacy of the endoscopic approach for the repair of female groin hernia has yet to be examined. The current study was undertaken to compare the clinical outcomes of female patients who underwent open and endoscopic totally extraperitoneal inguinal or femoral hernioplasty (TEP). Methods: From July 1998 to June 2004, 108 female patients who underwent elective repair of groin hernia were recruited. The patients were divided into TEP (n = 30) and open groups (n = 78) based on the type of operation. Clinical data and outcome parameters were compared between the two groups. Results: The mean ages and hernia types were comparable between the two groups. All TEPs were successfully performed. The mean operative times were 52 min for unilateral TEP and 51 min for open repair. The difference was not statistically significant. Comparisons of the length of hospital stay, postoperative morbidity, pain score, and time taken to resume normal activities showed no significant differences between the two groups. A single patient in the TEP group experienced recurrence of hernia. Conclusions: The findings show equivalent postoperative outcomes after TEP and open repair of groin hernia in female patients. Because the wound scar after open repair is well concealed beneath the pubic hair and no superior clinical benefits are observed after TEP, open repair appears to be the technique of choice for the management of primary groin hernia in females. The TEP approach should be reserved for female patients with recurrent or multiple groin hernia. © Springer Science+Business Media, Inc. 2005.
