This video demonstrates a case of laparoscopic total extraperitoneal repair of inguinal hernia in which the surgeon does not use a balloon to create the extraperitoneal space. A large mesh is used but not fixed to any structures. This video provides for an alternate method of performing TEP without mesh fixation.
