Abstract

Background: Generally, TAPP and TEP has been done, but it gives both technically less space to surgery and there is a
need to suture the mesh. In our new study we get more space to operate and no sutures required.
Objectives: To study enhanced view total extraperitoneal laparoscopic hernioplasty (e-tep) for inguinal hernia
Methods: The data for this prospective study was obtained from 21 patients undergoing Laparoscopic hernioplasty
(21 from E-TEP) in Osmania General Hospital, Hyderabad, Telangana between November 2019 to May 2021 inclusive
of a follow up period of 6 months. Consent for the procedure was obtained. E-TEP procedure were performed using
Polypropylene mesh.
Results: Minor complication rate was 26.66% for ETEP group. There was one case of converted from ETEP to TAPP
method. The recurrence in E-TEP is zero. The hospital stay in E-TEP was 2.27 days.
Conclusion: ETEP is the best method of hernioplasty for a primary inguinal hernia. However largescale study and long
term follow up studies are required.
