  • "Nigerian" hernia repair method?

    Posted by UhOh! on August 31, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    I happened upon this study this afternoon and thought it was interesting. I have no idea whether the publication itself is considered a reputable medical journal, though, and it was published 7 years ago (based on procedures done the 7 years prior to that). I’m curious whether this repair technique is similar to any discussed here (such as the Kang direct repair, or a pared-down two-layer Shouldice):;year=2012;volume=2;issue=1;spage=18;epage=23;aulast=Yakubu;type=3

    As an aside, says a lot about the respective costs of medical care in different countries; this repair costs patients $99…

    That link is useless. Can you give name of authors (first one at least), title, publication and so on so that one can search for it?

    [EDIT 1]:

    I think you mean

    Usain, Hazakilu, and Abdulkadir Yakubu. “Single-layered tissue inguinal hernia repair.” Archives of International Surgery, vol. 2, no. 1, 2012, p. 18

    [EDIT 2]:

    Don’t be too surprised with prices. A mesh won’t cost more than some US$50.
