Background: Inguinal hernia is a common and widespread disease in the world that millions of people suffer from. Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most common general surgeries. Despite the high prevalence of this disease, no type of surgery has ideal results and postoperative complications still remain. The aim of the current study was to evaluate therapeutic consequences of laparoscopic hernia surgery with totally extraperitoneal (TEP) with and/or without Takers.Methods: Out of 54 patients studied in this clinical trial study, 27 patients underwent TEP using Takers and 27 patients without Taker. The findings were recorded during the operation and compared in 6-month follow-up using a questionnaire.Findings: The duration of operation, the duration of hospitalization, the duration of postoperative pain, and the duration of return to work and normal daily activities were the same in both groups. In terms of hernia recurrence rate, one recurrence was observed in each group. Other complications including infection, neuralgia, and postoperative hematoma were not observed in any of the groups.Conclusion: The present study showed that in patients with inguinal hernia after repair by TEP method, it may not be necessary to use Takers for mesh fixation.
