Abstract

This repair of these hernias laparoscopically has been well established. There are many variations in technique to obtain the best outcomes. We have attempted to outline the methods that are known to provide for the best results within the literature reviewed. The reader is encouraged to explore the most recent data in an effort of continuous quality improvement.
