[Is the presence of an asymptomatic inguinal hernia enough to justify repair?].
Praxis (Bern 1994) 2015; 104(23):1259-63P

Abstract

The risk of strangulation in case of a inguinal hernia is low. Patients with a symptomatic inguinal hernia should undergo an operation. Morbidity and mortality in inguinal hernia surgery are very rare. There is also non-conservative treatment of inguinal hernias. Trusses should no longer be recommended. Watchful waiting is an option for men with minimally symptomatic or asymptomatic inguinal hernias. But patients must be informed that there is a high risk of becoming symptomatic.
