Summary (Producer) Transabdominal preperitoneal technique (TAPP) is the commonest technique for laparoscopic herniorrhaphy. Detailed understanding of preperitoneal anatomy from an abdominal perspective is emphasized. Successful repair requires accurate mesh fixation to the pubic tubercle, Cooper's ligament, ileopubic tract and the transverus arch. Coverage of direct, indirect and femoral areas, careful avoidance of ileofemoral vessels, genitofemoral and lateral cutaneous nerves are highlighted
