The use of preperitoneal mesh in hernia repair surgery could save the UK National Health Service "millions of pounds" and dramatically improve patient throughput, says the British Hernia Centre. Citing a study published in the February issue of the British Journal of Surgery, the centre said that the technique reputedly gives better results and is safer than laparoscopic hernia surgery. It is said to be particularly useful in the treatment of multirecurrent inguinal hernia, as it can reduce recurrence rates from 30% to less than 1%.
