Özet

Minimally invasive surgery is widely used in hernia repair given its advantages such as minimal disturbance to the surrounding tissues, shorter hospital stay, and promising long-term results. Efforts are still being made to make this minimally invasive procedure even more minimal. New tissue adhesives avoid the use of foreign materials and the postoperative pain that might be attributed to staples. We present the first two cases of bilateral inguinal hernia repair performed with a totally extraperitoneal procedure using fibrin sealant instead of staples for the fixation of the mesh.
