Introduction: Inguinal hernia is a very common disease. It is estimated that at least 5% of the population will develop a groin hernia in their lifetime, making groin hernia repair one of the most common operations performed by general surgeons. The only way to treat inguinal hernia is surgery. Aim: The aim of our study is to compare the outcome after Lichtensteins inguinal hernia repair using conventional mesh v/s self-fixating Progrip mesh. The primary endpoint of the study will be the incidence of post-operative pain Objectives: 1) To compare the outcome in terms of operative time. 2) To compare possibility of complications. 3) To compare postoperative pain. Conclusion: Lichtensteins inguinal hernia repair using self-fixating Progrip mesh has an advantage over conventional mesh in terms of less operative time and post-operative pain.
