Aim: Selection of type of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair procedure for patients. To observe the comparison of the outcome of laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) with transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) inguinal hernia repair. Explore the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic TEP and TAPP inguinal hernia repair. Advantages and Disadvantages of laparoscopic TEP with TAPP inguinal hernia repair. Materials and methods: In this study, 100 cases of inguinal hernia were admitted to the Department of General Surgery, L.G. Hospital, Maninagar, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India in during the study period of 2019–2021 and operated for either of the laparoscopic methods randomly and equal in number. Results: All of our laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair patients selected for TEP and TAPP and all of them have good outcomes in the form of no recurrence. Both TEP and TAPP are found to have safe procedures and our institute has all the facilities required to perform inguinal hernia repair so it is feasible as well. Both procedures have their advantages and disadvantages, but both were found to be equally effective. Conclusion: From our study, we concluded that any of the inguinal hernia patients can be treated with either of the laparoscopic methods with equal results. There is no recurrence in both TEP and TAPP procedures. However, there are some concerns regarding the feasibility of both the procedure in the form of laparoscopic setup it requires and higher cost. Laparoscopic TEP repair is marginally better than TAPP in the form of the duration of surgical time, port site infection, and seroma while TAPP is marginally better at fewer chances of subcutaneous emphysema, the technicality of the procedure and diagnosis of opposite site hernia. However, both techniques are comparable and commendable if performed with precision and expertise.
