In a prospective, randomized study, including 108 patients, we investigated the effect of different locations for the subcutaneous injection of low dosed or low molecular heparin following standard herniotomia. In the group with injection into the contralateral abdominal wall the rate of local surgical complications was four times higher compared to those patients with injections into the thigh. Thus we conclude that after herniotomia low dosed or low molecular heparin should be applied into the subcutis of the thigh.
