Pre-shaped mesh in the inguinal box

The lateral mesh is tucced under the external oblique aponeurosis. A rigid pre-shaped universal mesh fits the entire inguinal box. The mesh cannot move or migrate, because it is placed in a closed anatomical space. It is not necessary to suture the mesh.

Closure of the aponeurosis

The aponeurosis of the extra oblique muscle is closed under the spermatic cord without tension, because the inferior crus has been widened during the exploration of the femoral canal
