Like all atypically sited hernias, lumbar hernias face the challenge due to proximity to the bony landmarks which makes it difficult to create adequate space for mesh placement through conventional methods. The mesh fixation is a challenge as well in the atypically sited hernias in repairs like onlay or intraperitoneal onlay.
The introduction of eTEP technique by Dr Jorge Daes and its adoption in lumbar hernias by Dr Igor Belyansky has made it possible to create a large space in the pretransversalis plane and has done away with the problem of fixations.
We have found the eTEP technique particularly useful for these atypically sited hernias such as lumbar, subcostal, and subxiphoid hernias.
In this video, we present one such video of lumbar hernia repair through eTEP technique.
