A hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity protrude out of the membrane in which it is usually located in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue via a weak spot. Hernias may or may not show symptoms on their own because they are asymptomatic, and may cause mild to extreme pain.
 
There are various types of hernia namely- Inguinal (direct & indirect), Femoral, umbilical and ventral (Incisional, periumbilical and epigastric)

The term laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy can refer to any of the following three techniques:

  • Totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair.
  • Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair.
  • Intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) repair.
