Simultaneous repair of bilateral inguinal hernia is a persistent problem in hernia surgery. Introduction of
laparoscopic hernia repair attenuated perioperative stress and the need for pain control; it simplified postoperative
course and shortened the postoperative inability for work. Bilateral hernia repair become reality with the introduction
of the tension-free technique, especially for laparoscopic hernia repair. We present a case series of patients with
bilateral inguinal hernia. They were treated with transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) laparoscopic technique with a
placement of one large mesh. The main advantage of laparoscopic hernia repair for bilateral inguinal hernia is reduced
postoperative pain and early return to daily activities.
