      This has probably been discussed already (apologies for this). Does it matter where the mesh is placed, as far as inflammation/body response is concerned? If it does, which one would be better then, TEP or TAPP (assuming same mesh, same size although the two might differ here? ) ?

      And which technique offers an easier path to removing the mesh if there is a problem?

      Thanks again!

      The mesh is in the same place for both

      Thanks for the answer! I was kind of wondering whether the peritoneum divided areas of the body that might behave differently, but I guess not from the inflammation point of view….

      I thought TEP : Totally Extraperitoneal Repair which is bit closer to external muscless
      TAPP: Trans Abdominal Pre pritonial Abdominal repair closer to Intestine relative to where mesh is placed

      No. The final position of the mesh is the same. The approach for TAPP starts intra-abdominally, so bowel is visible. But the mesh placement is in exactly the same place.
