abstract

  • The results of our study have indicated that older patients, thinner patients, those with previous inguinal hernia repair, and those developing bladder neck contracture are at increased risk of developing an inguinal hernia. These factors might identify a subset for whom evaluation for subclinical hernia might allow prophylactic inguinal hernia repair at RP.
