At the end of a follow-up period of 18 ( 6– 38) months on average, we determined that all our patients continued their professional sports careers with no inguinal pain ( Table 3). Brown reported that he successfully treated 98 hockey players with a success rate of 97% using PTFE meshes. Meyers ( 45, 46) performed a plication surgery by suturing the infero-lateral end of rectus abdominis fascia to the pubis and inguinal ligament.

Furthermore, it should be remembered that damage to the hamstring muscle may also result in inguinal pain ( Table 1) ( 1). The general public and media are more familiar with "sports hernia," however, and this term will be used for the remainder of this article. It is generally subtle at the beginning; however, it may start in the form of a sudden pain and tear in some cases. In 1992, Malyca and Lovell ( 17) identified posterior wall swelling in 80% of sportsmen with un-diagnosed chronic lower abdominal and inguinal pain and concluded that these findings were associated with new-onset direct groin hernia.In many cases of sports hernia, the tendons that attach the thigh muscles to the pubic bone (adductors) are also stretched or torn. During examination, not only hip pathologies, but also potentially concomitant rectus abdominis or adductor longus tendon damage should also be investigated. There are no randomized prospective studies indicating whether any of the methods is superior to others. He got famous for vivid descriptions and personification of the countryside, sharing with Thomas Hardy a Western England background and a strong sense of regional setting in his works.

Furthermore, he also aimed to eliminate pelvic muscle imbalance by performing tenotomy at the contracted adductors in some patients. Accordingly, they listed the MRI findings seen with sportsman’s hernia as observation of rectus abdominis and adductor aponeurosis tears, identification of tenoperiostal dehiscence, secondary cleft finding (marker for adductor damage), rectus abdominis edema and atrophy at the pubic ligament-tendon adhesion site as well as dehiscence of adductor tendons. It most often occurs during sports that require sudden changes of direction or intense twisting movements. We are of the opinion that a mesh placed via TEP is more advantageous than an open technique in that it provides more physiological and less traumatic support for pelvic stability.A better understanding of the pathophysiology of sportsman’s hernia would improve clinical course and further shorten the remission period. Garvey ( 19, 50) recommended posterior inguinal wall repair (Maloney darn hernioraphy), conjoint tendon repair (Hyde technique with Prolene suture), partial tenotomy of the transverse adductor longus and obturator nerve mobilization for groin reconstruction. In spite of the symptoms and signs being typical, the first treatment plan should be conservative treatment and surgery should be performed when conservative treatment is not successful. Over time, a sports hernia may lead to an inguinal hernia, and abdominal organs may press against the weakened soft tissues to form a visible bulge.

Sports activities that involve planting the feet and twisting with maximum exertion can cause a tear in the soft tissue of the lower abdomen or groin.While some describe it as chronic pain syndrome associated with inguinal injury in sportsmen, it was defined as chronic inguinal pain secondary to new-onset posterior groin wall hernia by Gulmo ( 14) in 1980 and by Ekberg ( 15) in 1981. Since they identified scar tissue and nerve impingement at the external oblique level, they routinely performed nerve resection ( 49).
