Conclusions

It is necessary to perform 16 contralateral inguinal explorations to prevent one metachronous hernia.

The incidence of a MCIH is 6.4%.

This is too low to justify routine contralateral inguinal groin exploration in children due to the potential risks of an unnecessary operation.

Infants younger than six months and those with a left-sided hernia originally are at increased risk of developing a MCIH, and therefore should receive a regular review in the primary health care setting.
