Abstract

Inguinal vasal obstruction following hernia repair is related to either direct injury to vas or ischemic
injury leading to delay stricture. Not much has been described regarding the long term impact of
synthetic mesh as far as integrity of the cord structure is concerned. Here, we report a case that
underwent mesh explantation for posthernioplasty inguinodynia as well as recurrence and found
to have total occlusion of the lumen of vas segment adherent to the explanted mesh on microscopic
examination.
Key Words: inguinal hernia, polypropylene mesh, vas obstruction
