THE OPERATION for the repair of an inguinal hernia is one of the commonest operations performed in both large and small hospitals in this country. In teaching hospitals it is one of the first major operations to be turned over to young surgeons. Strangely enough, this operative procedure is still far from standardized. There are innumerable variations, many of which bear the names of distinguished surgeons. Each variation has been prompted by dissatisfaction with the results previously obtained. The results following the use of the new technique are always an improvement over previous results. Considering the great number of techniques that have been described, one cannot help but wonder whether the better results are due to the new technique or to the fact that the author has made himself, and those exposed to his teaching, a better surgeon. Stimulating interest and studying one particular subject will always improve performance.
