A modified Kugel patch is more expensive than ordinary mesh and demands a wide dissection of the preperitoneal space in femoral hernia repair. We therefore adopted a novel method using mini-mesh and a Lichtenstein repair. This study compared mini-mesh and Lichtenstein repair with a modified Kugel technique in patients with a primary unilateral femoral hernia.
