Abstract

We present a case of an 84-year-old woman with nonstrangulated, reducible obturator hernia treated with laparoscopic total extraperitoneal prosthetic hernia repair. Preoperative diagnosis was made based on the clinical findings. The patient's postoperative recovery has been uneventful, without complications. When a nonstrangulated obturator hernia is diagnosed preoperatively, this procedure is likely to be successful.
