ARAGON PALMERO, Felipe Jorge; EXPOSITO EXPOSITO, Moisés; HERNANDEZ HERRERA, Luis Roberto  and  ARAGON PALMERO, Lensky. Laparoscopic hernioplasty and without tension anterior repair: What about evidences?. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2009, vol.48, n.4. ISSN 0034-7493.

Surgical treatment of inguinal hernia remains controversial despite the advances achieved in past 20 years related to biomaterial and instrumentation. Laparoscopic repair techniques are part of surgical armamentarium, but its place in this type of surgery still is not well defined. To determine the role of open repair via anterior to prosthesis basis and of laparoscopic approach of inguinal hernia, authors reviewed the publications with a high level of evidence from the past 10 years using different strategies of search in databases available in Infomed.

Keywords : Inguinal hernia; systematic review; laparoscopic surgery.
