Background: Groin chronic pain after herniorrhaphy remains unclear partly related to undesired dithermy or missuture of groin nerves. How to prevent that is becoming a pressing issue.
Objective: To analysis potential causes of neuro-origin pain after surgery and to describe an improved technology via hernia-roof/hernia sac top (HST) approach in avoidance of excessive unessential procedures against nerve injury accidently.
Methods: To describe the detailed procedures, and evaluate value of protection of nerve. Results: HST approach reduces potential of chronic pain as expected.
Conclusion: HST was proved to be accessible and convenient way to reduce groin chronic neuro-origin pain during surgery.
