Aninguinal hernia is a weakness occurs in the wall of abdominal cavity which isvery large enough to allow escape of the soft body tissue or internal organ,particularly a part of the intestine.

Itgenerally appears as a lump & for some of the people it can also cause thepain and discomfort, limit daily activities & the ability to do the work.If the bowel strangulates or it becomes obstructed it will be very critical.

A herniawill be repaired usually by usage of a synthetic mesh either with the opensurgery or by increasingly using less invasive laparoscopic methods.

The mostcommon type of laparoscopic techniques for inguinal hernia repair weretransabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair & totally extraperitoneal (TEP)repair.

In TAPPthe surgeon will goes into the peritoneal cavity & places a mesh by aperitoneal incision over the possible hernia sites. In case of TEP, it isdifferent in that the peritoneal cavity won’t enter and mesh is used to sealand cover the hernia from outside the peritoneum (a thin membrane which coversthe organs in the abdomen). This method is considered to be more difficult whencompared with TAPP but it may have some fewer complications.
