Six Mesh Hernia Repairs in a Single Patient Done Simultaneously- A Case Report PD01-PD03
No. 47/3, New Avadi Road, Kilpauk, Chennai-600010, Tamil Nadu, India.
Bilateral hernias being done simultaneously is quite a common procedure. Sometimes, a para umbilical hernia is fixed at the same time as well. However, it is rare to fix more than three hernias of the abdominal wall simultaneously. This case report presents a 73-year-old gentleman who underwent mesh hernioplasty of the hiatus, an epigastric hernia, a paraumbilical hernia, a Spigelian hernia, and bilateral inguinal hernia repair as well, all done in a single session. On follow-up at one year, he was asymptomatic, with no complications attributable to the multiple hernia meshplasty. This case report is being published to reiterate that multiple abdominal wall deficiencies can be corrected in a single sitting, which is advantageous in terms of cost and the need for multiple admissions, especially for patients from remote areas.
