Between the years 2004 and 2008, the file records of 121 patients with inguinal hernia, who were operated on by the same surgeon with Lichtenstein and darn repair techniques in three state hospitals, were retrospectively compared in terms of relapse. Of these, 61 patients were operated with the darn repair technique, while 60 patients underwent hernia repair with
the Lichtenstein technique. When the patients were evaluated in terms of postoperative recurrence, no difference was found between two groups. Also, the darn repair technique was considered more economical as no meshes were used.
