Most previous reports have shown that the basic mechanism of inguinal hernia involves insufficient collagen strength and metabolism. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether joint hypermobility is involved in the development of inguinal hernia in children and to investigate oxidative stress parameters and prolidase activity in tissue samples from children with inguinal hernia.
