INTRODUCTION: The most frequent form of hernia is inguinal hernia, affecting around 15% of adult males. The optimal surgical anesthetic method for ambulatory inguinal hernia repair is unknown at the moment, and there is no consensus on the procedure. The goal of this study was to examine the outcome of inguinal hernia repair under local anesthesia compared with spinal anesthesia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective observational study, 80 patients were randomly assigned into two groups by the SNOSE method with a different mode of anesthesia: group SA (n = 40) and group LA (n = 40). Lichtenstein tension-free hernioplasty was done in all patients. Pre- and post-OP clinical examinations (3rd day) were looked for complications. RESULTS: There were no significant demographic differences between the two groups. When compared with the SA group, the LA group experienced much less post-operative pain. With local anesthesia, post-operative ambulation was substantially faster. The use of a local anesthetic allowed for a shorter stay in the hospital and a speedy return to regular activity. In general, local anesthesia was linked to less post-operative complications in the early aftermath. CONCLUSION: Local anesthesia is a preferable choice to spinal anesthesia for short stay or daycare surgery, particularly for patients who are unable to tolerate spinal anesthesia. As a result, Lichtenstein’s hernioplasty performed under local anesthesia is attracting considerable interests in the field of groin hernia repair.
