Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Herniorrhaphy is one of the most commonly performed operations in the UK. Approximately 1 per 1,000 of the population has a groin hernia.

METHOD AND RESULT:

We report on a rare complication following laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy of bladder stone formation and its management.

CONCLUSION:

To our knowledge a combined laparoscopic repair of the urinary bladder wall, following iatrogenic injury by a mesh fixation clip and retrieval of bladder stone (induced through the misplacement of the clip) has not been described previously.
