“…Pantaloon and indirect on one side each 1 structures such as vas [5], testicular vessels [18], and nerves [19] in this cicatrix has been debated earlier.…”

“…It is not clear, however, if the wide dissection of tissues would be responsible for this complications. 25,26 In our experiments we did not manage to observe any of those complications, nor nerve entrapments, mesh extrusions, or loss of skin integrity. One major limitation for the use of this technique is the length of the nerve gap amenable to be corrected with the use of the Marlex 1 mesh.…”

“…Damage to the nerves due to scar tissue formed because of the mesh has also been implicated. Demirer et al, in an animal study, have shown that mechanical compression of peripheral nerves due to a polypropylene mesh is associated with myelin degeneration, endoneurial and perineurial edema, fi brosis, axonal loss, and peripheral neuropathy [18].…”

“…The biologic evidence that mesh implantation alone (without nerve entrapment by suture or tacks) can cause inguinodynia comes from studies that have shown increased nerve edema and fibrosis with polypropylene mesh implantation 3,11 and inflammation with polytetrafluoroethylene mesh placement. 11 In addition, the rates of symptom improvement and satisfaction were unrelated to the use of neurectomy, as evidenced by similar outcomes, despite reduced use of neurectomy in the AHD group (compared with the AWM group), lending support that meshectomy itself, and not concomitant neurectomy, can improve inguinodynia that is not neuropathic in origin.…”

“…1,2 Mesh implantation has been shown to cause ilioinguinal nerve edema and fibrosis 3 and may be a cause of postherniorrhaphy inguinodynia. Heise and Starling 4 reported that mesh removal (meshectomy) improves symptoms in 60% of patients experiencing postherniorrhaphy inguinodynia.…”
