Side Incidence and Age Prevalence: Inguinal Hernia

GURMEET SINGH SARLA

Abstract


Inguinal hernia is one of the most common presentations in the surgical outpatient department and mesh hernioplasty is the most common surgical procedure performed by a general surgeon. Patient data were taken from the Department of General Surgery and analysed to reveal that right-sided inguinal hernia is more common as compared to left sided. The most common age group involved was 51–60 years.
