The posterior approach to inguinal hernia repair

Daniel O. Herzig, David A. Iannitti

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The posterior approach to an inguinal hernia repair has been described for decades; however, it has not been as widely performed as the traditional anterior approaches. Improved knowledge of the posterior inguinal anatomy and recent "minimally invasive" modifications in this technique have repopularized interest in open preperitoneal inguinal hernia repairs.
