Abstract

Abdominal wall hernias, in particular inguinal hernias are the most frequently encountered entity in general surgery. Consequently, the socio-economic burden results from the in-hospital phase itself and to a considerable extent from the convalescence period. In addition to the surgical procedure and the occupation of the patient there are two factors of particular significance influencing the aftercare: the post-operative pain and the given recommendations for postoperative strain. Next to patient-factor adapted operative procedures it is therefore essential, to offer a standardized pain management and recommendations for postoperative strain. Currently there is no conclusion, whether the minimally invasive techniques will be established as the "Gold-standard", particularly from an economic point of view and the introduction of the DRG in Switzerland.
