Abstract

Groin hernia surgery is common; the lifetime risk of undergoing surgery for groin hernia is 27% in men and 3% in women. Elective groin hernia repair is considered a low-risk procedure, with fewer than one death per 10,000 operations. By contrast, emergency repair of hernia is associated with significant morbidity and mortality; in elderly adults with groin hernias, early elective surgery is preferred
