Following the laparoscopic revolution, laparoscopic hernia repair has become one of the most common laparoscopic operations. Several studies have demonstrated a definite advantage over open repair with regards to reduced postoperative pain and earlier return to work and normal activities, especially in young patients. When repairing recurrent hernias, the TAPP repair offers an advantage of dissection in a previously non-damaged area. A stepwise approach of the technique with detailed description of the anatomical landmarks is performed.
