BACKGROUND: Hernia repair is one of the most frequent operation in general surgery. The aim of this is study is to present a new preperitoneal atraumatic dissection of peritoneal flap during laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair.
METHODS: From January 2019 to December 2019, 30 patients (19 male, 11 female) attended TAPP inguinal hernia repairs. The inclusion’s criteria were: patients from 32 to 88 years; male and woman; bilateral inguinal hernia.
RESULTS: The median age of patients was 46,46 (32-88). The median time of operation was 63,8 (45-100) minutes. All procedures were performed without complications and convertions.
CONCLUSIONS: Based on our experience the soft technique is a safe and feasible way to create a preperitoneal flap. Operating time is drastically reduced and the learning curve is reduced even for less experienced surgeons.
