Laparoscopic herniorrhaphy has now been shown to be an effective technique to correct an inguinal hernia. Three types of laparoscopic herniorrhaphies are routinely performed: the transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP), the intraperitoneal onlay procedure (IPOM), and the totally extraperitoneal (TEP). The TAPP procedure is the most common but the TEP is becoming increasingly popular. The IPOM procedure is effective but should be considered investigational because of the intraabdominal location of the prosthesis.
