"As a resident at Washington University--Barnes Hospital in the 1990s, we were trained in Bassini, Cooper, Shouldice and then Lichtenstein repair. Every staff surgeon had a favorite repair and their own version of it. We learned the nuances of a transition stitch, releasing incision, and shutter mesh overlap. Mesh could be glued, sutured, tacked or stapled.
