Ilioinguinal Nerve Excision in Open Mesh Repair of Inguinal Hernia,a Randomized Clinical Trial
this study was designed to evaluate the effect of routine excision of the ilioinguinal nerve in an attempt to decrease the incidence of chronic inguinodynia in patients who undergo open anterior hernia mesh repair.
As chronic pain is the 2nd most common complication following open hernia repairs and it causes limitations and dysfunctions for the patients and also according to some previous studies elective ilioinguinal neurectomy could result in less postoperative pain,we decided to perform a randomized double blind clinical trial.The primary goal of this study was evaluation of the effect of this type of neurectomy on postoperative pain and hyposthesia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Pain during the period after surgery.
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
Surgical Procedures, Elective
Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.

This study will compare repeated intermittent IV dosing of diclofenac in patient with moderate to severe post-surgical pain from elective orthopedic surgery.
The risk of persistent pain following a retropubic sling is rare (1%). Nerve injuries have been suspected as a cause of persistent postoperative pain. We present two cases of postoperative pain though...
BACKGROUND: Chronic groin pain after inguinal hernia repair, a serious problem, is caused by entrapment of the ilioinguinal nerve either by mesh or development of fibrosis. Division of the ilioinguina...
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerve blocks in patients with chronic pain after herniorrhaphy, by comparing nerve stimulator and ultraso...
