Local anesthesia is the most common technique used in the surgical treatment of inguinal hernia. The introduction of synthetic prosthesis, which are resistant to infection, has to the development of surgical techniques used in local anesthesia, in a day hospital setting. These techniques permit a lowering of hospital costs and a reduction of the incidence of complications and recurrences. Over the last few years the authors have been performing a modified Lichtenstein repair or the Rives technique in local anesthesia. In this study they present their data on 52 patients surgically treated in the period 1997-1998, and discuss the advantages of their technique.
