Lichtenstein's technique of inguinal hernia repair under local analgesia using polypropylene mesh has been evaluated in 52 cases. The evaluation was done particularly with regard to infective complications, any incidence of the mesh remoal and recurrence. The follow-up period was 2 - 3 years. After usual herniotomy, a piece of polypropylene mesh was used to reinforce the posterior wall of inguinal canal, making a neo-internal ring for spermatic cord and fixing the mesh inferiorly to the shelving part of the inguinal ligament and superiorly to the conjoint muscle and tendon. After a follow-up of 2-3 years, mesh was not required to be removed from any patient or no report of recurrence took place in any case.
