Spiegelian hernias are quite rare and account for 1 to 2% of all abdominal wall hernias. In this video, Dr. Joel Leroy demonstrates the key steps of the laparoscopic management of inguinal and Spiegelian hernia using a transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) approach. The operator briefly outlines the basic rules for port placement and dissection based on anatomical landmarks. In addition, he introduced the main points related to mesh fixation and closure in Spiegelian hernias.
