Abstract

Purpose: Femoral hernias (FH) are rarely seen in children, so there is no consensus on the age and sex distribution or the optimum method of repair. Recently, repair of the femoral hernias with mesh-plug has gained wide popularity in adults. The authors used this method in 4 children with FH and discuss its utilization in children.
