Case description

This video demonstrates laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair by Dr. R K Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. 

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has got comparable results in comparison to open hernia repair. Many studies have shown that Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair gives better results in terms of recurrence as compared with open hernia surgery but with the added advantage of fewer chances of post-operative, pain, wound infection, and early return to activity. Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair was started using the transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) approach. Another technique of LIHR that has evolved is totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair. 

An inguinal hernia is a bulge that occurs in your groin region, the area between the lower part of your abdomen and your thigh. Inguinal hernias occur because of a weakening of the muscles in the lower abdomen.

Three layers protect the intestines inside the lower abdomen. The first is a thin membrane called the peritoneum. The second is made up of the abdominal muscles, and the third is your skin.

An inguinal hernia forms when your intestines and the peritoneum push through the muscles and appear as a bulge under your skin. Inguinal hernias are dangerous because they tend to keep getting larger and your intestine can get trapped inside the bulge and lose its blood supply. This is called a strangulated inguinal hernia, and surgery may be needed to correct the problem.
