Introduction: The hernia affection is one of the processes that has been studied into much detail and whose treatment pursues excellence, although many controversies are still yet to be resolved. Laparoscopy repair of inguinal hernia is a treatment method that improves the quality of management given to our patients.
Objective: To identify perioperative events, surgical complications and to evaluate the pain referred for the patients who have had inguinal hernia repair by the laparoscopic method. (TEP).
Method: A prospective and descriptive study was done on 80 patients who have had endoscopic (TEP)repair of inguinal hernias between January 2013 and December 2020.
Result: We performed 100 hernioplastias by laparocoscopy in 80 patients. The male sex predominated in a 5:1 ratio and the surgical time average was, 53.5 minutes for unilateral hernias and 71.3 minutes for the bilateral ones. The most frequent complication in the transoperatory stage was “minor bleeding”. At 15 days after surgery, 86.3% of the operated did not complain of pain, but social and laboral reintegration was at a 34% of the total.
Conclusion: Laparoscopic inguinal hernioplasty is a good therapeutic option, mainly in patients with bilateral and reproduced inguinal hernias.
