This video demonstrates the steps in performing a TAPP (transabdominal preperitoneal) repair using a large mesh. The surgeon with the aid of artistic drawings demonstrate the key anatomic landmarks and dissection of the hernia sac and safe application of mesh and closure of peritoneal window. In this case the surgeon uses sharp dissection with scissors but the steps could well be completed bluntly with dissecting forceps.
