Aims: The purpose of this study was to see cosmetic outcome of simple suturing and mattress suturing in hernioplasty Methods: This is a randomised study performed in 80 patients who underwent hernioplasty procedure. After the procedure and closure of external oblique aponeurosis skin cleaned with 5%Betadiene solution and dried. Then Suturing done either by simple interrupted closure using 2'0 ethilon or mattress interrupted closure using 2'0 ethilon and cosmetic outcome have been analysed after

Result: There were no significant difference in the cosmetic outcome of the scar between two groups.Cosmetic outcome of the simple interrupted suture on the 4 th and 8 th week is 76.92+6.94 and 80+6.94.Cosmetic outcome of the mattress interrupted closure on 4 th and 8 th week is 77.69+6.67 and 79.49+5.59.Conclusion:As the cosmetic outcome doesn't make big difference between the two groups. But the trauma made by the needle during simple suturing is minimal comparative to mattress suturing. So Its better to use simple interrupted skin suturing compared to mattress.
