Assessments took place at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months, with all patients completing each follow-up visit. Mean VAS scores were significantly lower in the Tissucol group versus the staples group (MANOVA, P < 0.05). Higher scores for the modified SF-36 questionnaire at 1 month were demonstrated in the Tissucol group compared with the staples group (23.2 and 22.6, respectively; P < 0.05). The mean recovery time for normal physical activity was significantly shorter in the Tissucol group compared with the staples group (7.9 vs. 9.1 day, respectively; P < 0.001). One recurrence was seen in the fibrin glue group, which was attributable to a technical error in fixation of the mesh

Abstract

Assessments took place at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months, with all patients completing each follow-up visit. Mean VAS scores were significantly lower in the Tissucol group versus the staples group (MANOVA, P < 0.05). Higher scores for the modified SF-36 questionnaire at 1 month were demonstrated in the Tissucol group compared with the staples group (23.2 and 22.6, respectively; P < 0.05). The mean recovery time for normal physical activity was significantly shorter in the Tissucol group compared with the staples group (7.9 vs. 9.1 day, respectively; P < 0.001). One recurrence was seen in the fibrin glue group, which was attributable to a technical error in fixation of the mesh
