Inguinal hernia operation and fertility in men
It is still unknown whether or not inguinal hernia repair with or without the use of mesh causes infertility in male patients. The objective of this article was to discuss the available literature, to ascertain if the preclinical and clinical findings point towards a causal relationship. The review showed that the question remains difficult to answer due to a limited number of patients included and the discordant conclusions drawn in past studies. The largest recent cohort study came to the conclusion that there was no clinically significant risk of infertility associated with inguinal hernia repair. However, further studies are needed.
