Since 1989 we have performed 21 endoscopic hernia repairs in 19 female patients. One recurrent hernia occurred 3 months after laparoscopic preperitoneal patch repair using a single layer of resorbable mesh. Hernioscopy was developed as the transcutaneous endoscopic CO2-gas dissection and subsequent inspection of the preperitoneal hernial sac. Hernioscopic stuffing of the preperitoneal hernial sac using resorbable patch material was performed in seven direct inguinal hernias and in one femoral hernia. Postoperative pain was minimal and convalescence was short. No recurrent hernia occurred during a 1-9-month follow-up.
