Because it mimics a postoperative recurrence of hernia, seroma has been a concern to hernia patients.4Seroma formation after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair is reported with various rates (1.9%-22.9%) in the literature.4- 6The mean size of seroma formations was reported to be 3.8 ± 1.7 cm.1Seroma is typically present after the third or fourth postoperative day, and its incidence peaks at the seventh postoperative day.1Patients with seroma formation usually worry that their hernia has recurred. Indeed, fluid usually fills the inguinal canal and previous hernia site, which creates a palpable mass. When examined, the wound appears raised, but it is not inflamed or tender. The mass is fluctuant and the fluid ballotable. Ultrasonographic imaging can confirm the diagnosis. Treatment consists primarily of observation. Aspiration is rarely needed, and the seroma is frequently reabsorbed by the body by the second or third month after surgery.1For that reason, seroma is not considered by many to be a complication after laparoscopic hernia repair. Moreover, as suggested by Park et al,7it should be considered a complication only if it persists for more than 6 weeks, increases steadily in size, or produces symptoms.
