Lumbar hernias occur in the lumbar region, either in the superior lumbar triangle of Grynfelt or the inferior lumbar triangle of Petit. The most common aetiology is blunt abdominal trauma. The clinical presentation can range from pain, a palpable mass to intestinal obstruction. While the laparoscopic approach confers innumerable advantages such as smaller incisions, less pain and early recovery, it is still not the standard of care. The video shows a transabdominal laparoscopic hernia repair. Prolene mesh was used in the repair. The patient made an uneventful recovery.
