A case is presented of a male patient that presented with intestinal obstruction in the early postoperative period of a transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal repair (TAPP) that was diagnosed and repaired successfully using laparoscopy. Whenever a total extraperitoneal procedure (TEP) cannot be performed, the peritoneal closure of the TAPP should be done water-tight using interrupted stitches of absorbable monofilament sutures.
