I just came across this very thorough review of hernia repair. It is full of references and easy to read. It’s in the The World Journal of Methodology, a journal I was not aware of. https://www.wjgnet.com/2222-0682
The Discussion area starts with an interesting statement, excerpted below.
I have also pulled out all of the acronyms and attached them to the bottom of the post.

Fascinating history of groin hernias: Comprehensive recognition of anatomy, classic considerations for herniorrhaphy, and current controversies in hernioplasty
Tomohide Hori and Daiki Yasukawa
Some organizations (e.g., the European Hernia Society and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons) currently provide comprehensive inguinal hernia guidelines, and well-known surgeons have discussed herniology in detail[207-214]. However, many physicians may feel that no definitive criteria are available for the selection of surgical procedures. Indeed, the physician’s choice, commercial basis, or cost-effective reasoning may be unchallenged in most instances.
