Abstract

Subcutaneous endoscopically assisted ligation (SEAL) is a technique for high ligation of the patent processus at the internal ring without a groin incision or dissection of the vas and vessels. Under endoscopic visualization through a single umbilical port, a suture is guided extraperitoneally around the internal ring, avoiding the vas and vessels. The safety, efficacy (recurrence risk), and cost-effectiveness of this unproven procedure must be tested against standard open repair in a trial.
