ABSTRACT
Introduction: Reduction en masse is a rare complication of an incarcerated inguinal hernia. Its occurrence should be suspected when intestinal obstruction persists despite a seemingly successful manual reduction or hernioplasty. Case Report: We report our experience in the management of a reduction en masse of a direct inguinal hernia. The diagnosis was established by computed tomography of the abdomen. The reduction en masse, as well as an accompanying indirect hernia, was successfully managed with laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernioplasty. Conclusion: The safety, effectiveness, and minimal invasiveness conferred by the laparoscopic approach justified its application under such conditions.
