Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair

This medical exhibit consists of five illustrations. The first illustration is a posterior view of a male figure. A plane is drawn through the figure just above the pelvic bones to depict to the audience at what level the axial cutaway views represent. The second illustration is an enlarged detail of an axial view of the pelvis. The right anterior pelvis is the focus of the illustration. An inguinal hernia is present. Labels identify the electrical hazard zone, ilioinguinal nerve, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, genitofemoral nerve, iliac vein and artery, triangle of doom, colon, epigastric vessels and bladder. The third illustration is a superior axial view of the pelvis with a stapler, laparoscope and grasper present. The fourth illustration is an enlarged detailed view of the correct way to place a mesh to repair a right inguinal hernia. The fifth illustration shows an incorrect plamement of mesh where the tacks are placed circumferentially around the mesh.
