In case you’re open to suggestions for Hernia Talk guests, I’d like to propose two please:
1. @drkang. I’m sure many members would be very keen to listen to a discussion with you both. I recall you mentioning in a post something along the lines of the Marcy repair isn’t suitable for adult males, so to hear more about the Kang repair and for you to be able to discuss and get clarification as to how it improves on the Marcy repair to make it a suitable and robust repair for all adults would be excellent.
2. Dr Joachim Conze:
With his expertise as a hernia specialist in Germany offering a tailored approach, I think he’d be a great guest. Like some of the other German hernia specialists, my understanding is that Dr Conze offers a modified Shouldice without cutting the cremaster and nerves, with 4 permanent rows of Prolene sutures as his main tissue repair, as well as Desarda repairs as a secondary option.
I also understand that he has recurrence and chronic pain rates of under 1% over 8 years plus in the German Hernia registry, but I haven’t been able to access this registry to clarify it.
It would be great to hear more detail about all of this and De Conze has also worked with the well renowned Dr Ulrike Muschaweck.
