The inguinal hernia had been a pathology of interest for the medical community even before the emergence of anesthesia and surgery as we know them today. Starting with the second half of the 19th century, surgery will have suffered a spectacular evolution along with the development of anesthetic techniques. Initially, the inguinal hernia was treated with an intervention regarding only the superficial inguinal hole, followed by a compulsory wear of orthotics, at that time called "orthopedic support." Eduard Bassini managed to change the course of history in the treatment of this pathology, proposing a new intervention which at that time was considered radical and very courageous.
