Background: Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair offers various advantages both to the patient and the surgeon. Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) and total extraperitoneal (TEP) repairs represent the two laparoscopic options. A personal technique of single incision laparoscopic TEP has already been published on WebSurg (Link: http://www.websurg.com/MEDIA/?noheader=1&doi=vd01en4054). Video: This video demonstrates the single incision laparoscopic treatment of a peritoneal hole, which occurred accidentally during a right TEP procedure. Results: The TEP procedure lasted 41 minutes and the peritoneal repair 8 minutes. The final umbilical scar length was 10mm and the patient was discharged within 24 hours. Conclusions: Peroperative complications can occur during single incision laparoscopy, as well as during conventional laparoscopy and open surgery. The procedure can be performed without conversion or additional trocars, depending on the complications which occurred.
