(17) in 1953 described a modification to the Bassini's repair, relying on a 4-layer closure through a special continuous suturing technique, thus doubling the fascia transversalis. His series of 8317 hernias over a 10-year period showed a recurrence rate of 0.8%.
In most direct inguinal hernias, the loosened Transversalis fascia was fixed to Cooper's ligament with a 5mm spiral tack to reduce dead space.
* The pre peritoneal location of the prosthesis resumes the position and the function of the transversalis fascia.
transversalis was determined by making four serial dilutions of insecticides resulting 10 to 90% mortality.
The spread of local anesthesia administered to the paravertebral area due to the anatomical connection of the fascia transversalis with endothoracic fascia has been suggested as the potential activity mechanism in the study in which posterior QLB has been applied (9).
A hernial sac containing the small intestine was identified intraoperatively, laterally to the rectus abdominis muscle, below the arcuate line, and protruding through a defect of the transversalis fascia and the transversus abdominis muscle.
Parallel to the antero-dorsal margin and in front of the crista transversalis interna anterior, a crista postbranchialis is developed.
After removal of the TA muscle, the anterior layer of the TLF and transversalis fascia (TF) lining on the inside of the QL and TA muscle was exposed on the posterior pararenal space.
Therefore, the mechanical behaviour of the fatfree endopelvic fascia itself consisting of elastin and collagen embedded in the ground matrix is adopted from the curve fit of the uniaxial tensile experiment performed on the human transversalis fascia [47] which is continuous with the pelvic fasciae.
In spite of these ever changing trend of techniques, surgical acumen spins on "tension free repair as the optimal strategy19 and in this regard rigorous research in inguinal surgery has reported that weakness and deficiency lies in anterior abdominal wall, but the price is paid by fascia transversalis to cope with the intra- abdominal pressure which subsequently end up with hernia.20 Logically this needs restoration with strengthening of posterior wall21.
Anatomically, the umbilical fascia derives from the transversalis fascia and should provide support to the base of the umbilicus.
