As Modified Bassini's technique involves dissecting and strengthening of the Transversalis fascia, technical difficulty may arise in case of older patients as the fascia is thinned out.
The first two sutures are taken through the anterior rectus sheath, where EOA is fused with it and each suture is passed first through the inguinal ligament, then the transversalis fascia and then the EOA.
It does not require complicated dissection or suturing nor does it use the weakened muscles or transversalis fascia for repair.
After completion of dissection and trans fixation of hernia sac, the transversalis fascia was opened.
Edoardo Bassini (1844-1924), an Italian surgeon, who is well known as Father of Modern Hernia Surgery opened the transversalis fascia, ligated the sac high in the retroperitoneal space and introduced repair of transversalis fascia and re-enforcement of posterior wall of inguinal canal by suturing conjoint tendon to inguinal ligament beneath the cord& this procedure was the most commonly done procedure for hernia repair, But this procedure had more incidence of complications like high recurrence rate and chronic pain.
6] Because of the stress of child-bearing, the transversalis fascia is stronger in the floor of the inguinal canal and hence has protective effect, so direct hernia in females is unusual.
