In the modified tensionless technique, cone-shaped preformed plug (Bard PerFix Plug), used as an underlay patch, is placed in the preperitoneal
plane, which is assisted by intra-abdominal pressure.
In the Lichtenstein repair, mesh is placed on premuscular layer, not preperitoneal
surface, as in laparoscopic techniques.
There were 7 (5.9%) patients with wound infections necessitating opening of the port stitches and drainage of superficial infection, bleeding was seen in 5(4.2%) requiring conversion to open, three patients (2.5%) developed intra abdominal abscess following anterior resection, abdominoperineal resection (APR) and transabdominal preperitoneal
(TAPP) inguinal hernia requiring percutaneous drainage under ultrasound guidance.
They include onlay repair in which mesh is placed in the subcutaneous plane above the anterior rectus sheath or external oblique; inlay repair in which mesh is sutured to the hernial neck; sublay repair in which mesh is placed in the retromuscular layer above the posterior rectus sheath, preperitoneal
repair in which mesh is placed between the peritoneum and posterior rectus sheath and intraperitoneal repair in which mesh is placed from inside the peritoneal cavity and fixed to anterior abdominal wall7.

A 52-year-old male patient was due to undergo LC and right laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (Transabdominal preperitoneal
This paper describes our extremely rare experience using laparoscopic repair for the recurrence of a bilateral inguinal bladder hernia following bilateral transabdominal preperitoneal
The laparoscopic procedures were either performed with the transabdominal preperitoneal
(TAPP) procedure with titanium staples for mesh fixation  or the totally extraperitoneal (TEP) procedure without fixation of the mesh except for bilateral hernias where the mesh was fixated with absorbable PDS tackers .
