Majority of inguinal hernia repair are performed in Hungary by traditional surgical techniques, reconstruction under tension (Bassini, Kirschner, Shouldice). Hernia surgery underwent a revolutionary change from the 80's. Set out from the United States, tension-free methodologies (Lichtenstein, laparoscopy, mesh plug) have spread worldwide, of which early and late results--especially recurrence rate--are significantly better than the formerly used techniques. Authors introduce the surgical technique of mesh plug hernioplasty and their promising experiences after the first 80 operations.
