The inguinal hernia is the most common abdominal wall hernia and consequently one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Surgical repair of inguinal hernia includes mesh-based or suture-based, following a posterior or anterior approach, through open surgical or laparoscopic/endoscopic procedures. Over the past years, various mesh types and surgical techniques were proposed to decrease postoperative pain; however, the results were not satisfactory. For that, we conducted a systematic electronic database search for suitable studies from inception till 31st May 2020 in seven databases. Finally, we included 2 papers for this systematic review and meta-analysis. The most-reported early complications were a limitation of normal activity and bruising of external genitalia with a prevalence of 9%, and 3.5% respectively. There was no report of late postoperative complications in terms of postoperative neuralgia, discomfort and sensation of a foreign body. All patients were discharged within 24h from surgery with slight pain reported by the majority of patients and no postoperative neuralgia. In conclusion, the “All-in-one mesh hernioplasty” technique is considered a promising approach in terms of minimizing post-operative complications such as post-operative pain, the sensation of foreign body, and recurrence rates. However, large-scale studies are needed with longer follow up the duration to assess the safety and efficacy of this technique in inguinal hernia repair.
