This is the case of a patient presenting with a Nyhus IIIb right inguinal hernia. The surgical technique is explained live in a stepwise fashion starting from the introduction of the first port until closure of the peritoneum. The major anatomical landmarks are highlighted. The dissection technique as well as the positioning of the Parietene® mesh fixed by absorbable staples (AbsorbaTack™) is demonstrated.
