Dysejaculation after laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy: a nationwide questionnaire study.

Summary of "Dysejaculation after laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy: a nationwide questionnaire study."


BACKGROUND:
Dysejaculation and pain from the groin and genitals during sexual activity represent a clinically significant problem in up to 4% of younger males after open inguinal herniorrhaphy. The aim of this questionnaire study is to assess the prevalence of dysejaculation and pain during sexual activity after laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy on a nationwide basis.
METHODS:
The study population comprised all men aged 18-50 years registered in the Danish Hernia Database (n = 1,671) who underwent primary laparoscopic herniorrhaphy between January 1, 1998 and November 30, 2009. Questionnaires regarding dysejaculation and pain during sexual activity were mailed 3 months to 12 years after surgery, and 1,172 patients were included for analysis.
RESULTS:
The response rate was 68.7% (n = 805). Dysejaculation occurring after laparoscopic repair was present in 25 patients (3.1%). Pain from the groin or genitals during sexual activity was reported by 88 patients (10.9%), and 19 patients (2.4%) reported that the pain had impaired their sexual activity to a moderate or severe degree. Older patients and patients with longer follow-up had lower prevalence of pain during sexual activity.
CONCLUSIONS:
Dysejaculation and pain-related impairment of sexual activity is a significant problem after laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy. The role of improved laparoscopic technique with use of glue fixation of lightweight meshes to reduce the risk of developing these complications needs to be evaluated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The tunnel in the lower anterior ABDOMINAL WALL through which the SPERMATIC CORD, in the male; ROUND LIGAMENT, in the female; nerves; and vessels pass. Its internal end is at the deep inguinal ring and its external end is at the superficial inguinal ring.

An abdominal hernia with an external bulge in the GROIN region. It can be classified by the location of herniation. Indirect inguinal hernias occur through the internal inguinal ring. Direct inguinal hernias occur through defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL (transversalis fascia) in Hesselbach's triangle. The former type is commonly seen in children and young adults; the latter in adults.
