Here we report a case of a giant inguinoscrotal hernia in an elderly patients treated by means of an open positioning ofintraperitoneal ePTFE dual mesh. In patients with giant inguinoscrotal hernia the forceful introduction of viscera in abdominal cavityand primary wall closure is burnened from respiratory complication, abdominal compartment syndrome, and defects in wound healingthus exposing the patients to further morbidity and mortality risk. The management of these patients is difficult because of thehigh occurrence of morbidity factors that affect the success on intervention independently of the technique of surgical repair. The tension-free technique we adopted consented us to obtain a successful repositioning of viscera in their own natural positioning avoidingthe occurrence of abdominal compartment syndrome, and subsequent respiratory complications.
