Abstract

The aim of this review is to determine: ( 1) whether laparoscopic methods are more effective and cost-effective than open mesh methods of inguinal hernia repair; and ( 2) whether laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair is more effective and cost-effective than laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair of inguinal hernia. Where data allow, the patient population has been split by whether or not the hernia is recurrent or bilateral and whether or not the patient receives general anaesthesia.
