a left segmental ressection of the tumor has been realized and we put the tumor in a bag

we opened the orifce of the hernia and as it was an indirect hernia we took the specimen in the bag through the same orifice and as it was a clean surgery we decided to treat the hernia with a mesh; before closing the orifice of the hernia the anvil is introduced in the abdominal cavity trough the orifice of the inguinal defect
