Inguinal hernias are frequent and have an enormous socio-economic impact. Surgical treatment is indicated in most of the patients to relieve symptoms and to prevent complications. Modem treatment should focus on low complication and recurrence rates, short recovery times, and--last but not least acceptable costs. Inguinal hernia repair can be carried out by an open or minimal invasive approach. Surgery is traditionally performed under general anesthesia, but local or locoregional anesthesia are other feasible options. Nowadays, inguinal hernia surgery can easily performed as an outpatient procedure. However, stringent selection criteria, an optimized infrastructure and a close and standardized follow-up are mandatory prerequisites in order to obtain excellent results under secure conditions.
