Abstract

The fibrotic reaction of polypropylene mesh after tension- free (TFR) inguinal herniorrhaphy causing vasal obstruction has been implicated as the reason for infertility in a group of patients presented in a recent paper by Shin and colleagues [1]. The purpose of this presentation is to examine the controversial subject of infertility and inguinal hernia repair and analyze some of the currently available evidence.
