Completely laparoscopic repair for recurrent inguinal hernia that developed after open posterior mesh repair.

Asian J Endosc Surg 2020 Jun 8. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Department of Surgery, Yokohama Ekisaikai Hospital, Yokohama, Japan.

Surgeons tend to avoid performing completely laparoscopic repair (CLR) for recurrent inguinal hernia (RIH) that developed after the open posterior mesh repair (OPMR). For many, totally extraperitoneal repair or transabdominal preperitoneal repair after OPMR seems difficult because the previously placed mesh may pose an obstacle during the exfoliation of the parietal peritoneum. Moreover, these procedures could cause chronic pain if the "trapezoid of disaster" is injured. Read More
