Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most common surgical procedure performed in Western countries and it consumes a lot of healthcare resources. Several types of different mesh are now disposable and tension-free techniques represent the “golden standard”. In our study, fifty male patients were operated on for inguinal hernia and a PAD (i.e., dynamic self-regulating prosthesis) used for the repair of the inguinal defect: this technique demonstrated to be safe, effective and easy to perform.
