Debate continues on the optimal repair method for inguinal hernia even though it is one of the most common procedures carried out with, an average of 20 million operations performed annually worldwide [1]. While there seems to be a general agreement on the use of mesh [2], there is little consensus on the optimal approach for inguinal hernia repair. Elements of the debate are focused on open vs. laparo-endoscopic techniques (TEP & TAPP), with a further debate on the technical aspects of each of these techniques.
