Hernia repair is the most common surgical procedure worldwide. The mesh repair is the gold standard technique for groin hernia in adults; anatomic, non-mesh repair is still indicated in contaminated wounds. The recommended techniques by the actual guidelines are: Lichtenstein and Shouldice technique for open access and TAPP (TransAbdominal PrePeritoneal) and TEP (Total ExtraPeritoneal) hernia repair for endoscopic repair. We present herein several aspects of TAPP hernia repair with highlighting its advantages. The present paper is a brief argument to do TAPP routinely in benefice of patients, residents and surgeons.
