Although Mesh Plug Repair (MPR) represents an effective method for the treatment of groin hernia, some criticisms still concern adverse effects related to the plug (shrinkage, chronic pain, migration and erosion). Different mesh and plug devices have been proposed in the past mostly to prevent migration but none of these achieved the same popularity as the cone or flower-shaped plug. Authors hereby present a pilot study with a new tridimensional device, denominated NeT Plug and Patch, that avoids any risk of migration. Results after 12 months follow-up have demonstrated low incidence of postoperative and chronic pain, with both patients and surgeons greatly satisfied. NeT Plug and Patch has proven to achieve a simple and effective repair for primary inguinal hernias.
