Abstract: The laparoscopic hernia repair has evolved as a technique involving placement of synthetic mesh in pre-peritoneal space. The present study was done to evaluate the totally extraperitoneal mesh hernioplasty for repair of inguinal hernia in our institute. The mean operative time was 47min. Peritoneal tear (14 %) was the most common complication occurring intra-operatively followed by seroma formation (12 %). We found that laparoscopic TEP repair is a safe and effective technique for inguinal hernia.
