Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair is like other laparoscopic technique. A small incision (cut) is inserted just below the navel area to operate hernia. In this process, the abdomen portion is inflated with the air to see abdominal organs clearly by surgeon. A laparoscope is a thin, light weight scope that is inserted through the small incision. The other small instruments are also inserted through other incisions to repair hernia in the lower abdomen. A mesh is then placed to protect the abdomen wall.

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has three techniques to perform the procedure. They are totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair, Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair and Intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) repair.
A laparoscopic technique repairs the recurrent hernia very easily and faster. It is also possible to found all possible and existing hernia at the time of operation and operate them in one go. Laparoscopic repair of inguinal hernia reduces postoperative pain, recovers faster, and eliminate the need of narcotics. But it also has increased cost, and has prolonged operation time. It also has higher rates of complications and recurrence, if the surgeon has low experience to operate the repair.
There are some risk associated with the surgery such as developing of blood clots, severe urinary problems, scar tissue formation, injury to the testicle, infection from the mesh or stitches, and recurrence of the hernia. Laparoscopic repair of inguinal hernia is much expensive than open surgery as it costs much more due to laparoscopic technology and have longer operation time.
