Abstract

The total extraperitoneal (TEP) approach for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair is one of the most difficult advanced laparoscopic procedures to learn. One reason for this difficulty is the unfamiliar and complex anatomy involved in the technique. A clinical approach to the abdominal wall and preperitoneal inguinal anatomy is presented.
