LOPEZ RODRIGUEZ, Pedro Rolando et al. Ten years experience in Mohan P. Desarda herniorrhaphy. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2013, vol.52, n.2, pp.118-125. ISSN 0034-7493.

Introduction: affection by hernia is one of the best studied processes and its treatment aims at excellence, although some controversy still persists. Objective: to present the results of the use of Mohan P. Desarda technique in the Surgery Service at "Enrique Cabrera" General Teaching Hospital, between January 2002 and December 2011. Methods: a random prospective study was conducted between January 2012 and December 2011 in 678 patients who had undergone surgery after the diagnosis of inguinal hernia, to whom Mohan P. Desarda surgical technique was performed, who were followed up in the outpatient consultation and, finally, by telephone. Results: the highest incidence was in the male sex, with 625 patients (92.2 %) and the average age was 58.3 years. The most frequent localization was the right one in 330 patients (48.7 %). Local anesthesia was applied to 490 patients (72.3 %). 461 patients received outpatient treatment (68 %). In 26 of them, (3.4 %), complications were diagnosed. Relapse was observed in 4 patients, for a 0.5 % of the total. Conclusions: satisfactory results are obtained with Mohan P. Desarda herniorrhaphy as well as with prosthetist techniques, contributing to important economic savings.
