Background After years of playing second-fiddle to laparoscopic underlay repairs, the retro-muscular Rives-Stoppa repair is rapidly gaining popularity thanks to the endoscopic eTEP approach. It extends all the advantages of a retro-muscular mesh placement—increased tolerance for infection, mechanical robustness, reduced need for mesh fixation—in an ergonomically acceptable system. Methods The eTEP technique described by Belyansky’s group requires a “crossover” from one retro-rectus space to the… Expand
