Iqbal Masud Khan, Md Zakir Hossain

Inguinal hernia is a commonly encountered problem by surgeon and various methods have been advocated for repair by various authors but each has got its own merit. Lich tenstein tension free mesh repair has been considered as standard procedure for inguinal hernia repair with low recurrence. With advancement of minimally invasive surgery laparoscopic hernia repair is gaining popularity. The aim of the study is to compare the results of Lichtenstein repair with laparoscopic TAPP (Trans abdominal pre peritoneal repair) in inguinal hernia. Laparoscopic TAPP repair is associated with faster recovery, less pain, better cosmesis and, least post-operative complications.
