Laparoscopic TAPP hernia repair is technically difficult, but in the hands of a well-trained surgeon, it is safe and effective in recurrent hernia too. The objective of this video is to demonstrate how a multi-recurrent hernia in the right inguinal region can be treated laparoscopically using a TAPP approach. The patient had been operated upon using an anterior repair first. For the first recurrence, a laparoscopic posterior approach with placement of a posterior bilateral prosthesis via a TAPP approach was performed. The repair of the second recurrence was achieved with placement of a 4D-DOME prosthesis.
