Difference between herniorraphy and hernioplasty for hernia repair

Well I won’t be going into the details of herniorraphy or hernioplasty here thought but will simply like to tell you the difference between the two and how to remember it.

Herniorraphy = repairing the defect by stitching the healthy ends of tissue / muscle together

Hernioplasty = repairing the defect using mesh patches

How to remember it ? well if the original tissue is Repaired (R) then it’s hernioRraphy and if a mesh Patch is applied then its hernioPlasty.
