Abstract

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair is among the most common procedures performed today by general surgeons. There is increasing data that laparoscopic surgery has the advantage of decreased postoperative pain and quicker return to normal daily activities, and it may even afford better visualization of a challenging anatomic region. However, there is considerable variety among general surgeons regarding the operative technique for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.
