The laparascopic transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair of an inguinal hernia is an established technique associated with low rates of recurrence and complications. Mesh erosion into the sigmoid colon is a rare complication that can cause distressing symptoms to the patient. Here we present a video demonstration of laparoscopic management of mesh penetration into the sigmoid colon with removal of the mesh and sigmoid colectomy.
