Abstract

Hernia recurrence has always been a challenge to general surgeons. With the use of synthetic polypropylene mesh, the situation has become more difficult. Currently the standard of care for recurrent inguinal hernias, at least in the developed world, is laparoscopic preperitoneal repair. However laparoscopic repair has several drawbacks. This new technique provides the freedom of dissection in a virgin plane and our small series of cases show some promising results.
