Simultaneous repair of inguinal hernia during LRP using prosthetic mesh is feasible without adverse effects on surgical and functional parameters. Neither the transperitoneal nor extraperitoneal approach is associated with an increase in complications or morbidity. However, an extraperitoneal access allows an easier repair without the refixation of the peritoneum.
