TAIPEI, TAIWAN (UroToday.com) - Introduction and Objectives: Inguinal hernia is a common disease and the operation today has been established to progress to the single port surgery. The new procedure is feasible and the cost effect is still debated.

wceMethods: We retrospectively evaluated patients who underwent hernioplasty for inguinal hernia under supervision by single surgeon from 2009 to 2013. Patients were divided into single port hernioplasty, laparoscopic hernioplasty and conventional open hernioplasty.

Results: Fifteen patients received single port hernioplasty, 21 received laparoscopic hernioplasty and 121 received conventional open hernioplasty. All single port hernioplasty were performed for bilateral hernia. The operation time was shorter in laparoscopic group than in the single port group without statistical difference. The analgesics use was significant less in the single port group than in the other groups. The total cost was higher in the single port group than that in the laparoscopic group and similar to the conventional group.

Conclusions: Single port laparoscopic hernioplasty is clinical feasible and cost effective for patients and hospital management.
