ABSTRACT
In this article, the authors focus on the use of low-cost mosquito net mesh as an alternative material in inguinal hernia repair in resource-limited situations. The authors mention that the use of mosquito net mesh in inguinal hernia surgery will allow small hospitals to offer operations at one-fifth of the price required by larger hospitals. They added that since 2008, the Operation Hernia foundation has conducted medical missions in Nigeria with the exclusive use of mosquito net mesh.
