Inguinal hernia, a subset or particular variety of abdominal wall defect, although usually less complicated, is a subject in the ongoing debates of prosthetic material versus primary tissue repair and laparoscopic versus open techniques. In these defects the laparoscopic repair can occur by using a transabdominal preperitoneal approach or a totally extraperitoneal technique, both of which use prosthetic mesh. The most widely accepted current open inguinal hernia technique, the Lichtenstein repair, as described by Amid, also uses prosthetic mesh. The appropriate methodology continues to be debated but likely involves the following two important concepts: (1) surgeon experience and (2) whether the planned procedure represents repair of a recurrence (Neumayer et al, 2004)
