Laparoscopic ventral hernia and incisional hernia repair has now become a standard technique.
However, the disadvantage of this technique is the contact between the mesh and tacks
and the viscera. The objective of this article is to describe totally laparoscopic extra-peritoneal
ventral and incisional hernia repair to avoid this problem. We developed a reverse Dulucq’s
technique for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair described as Reverse Totally Laparoscopic
Extra-Peritoneal ventral hernia repair (R-TEP).
