 The patient was a 72-year-old man. He presented with abdominal pain and vomiting 12 days after laparoscopic total extraperitoneal repair of bilateral internal inguinal hernias. An abdominal contrast CT revealed small intestinal distension due to stenosis in the right lower abdominal area. Diagnosed with adhesive intestinal obstruction, surgery was performed, and the small intestine was discovered to have adhered due to the staple. The staple was removed, and the narrowing resolved. Intestinal obstruction after abdominal cavity inguinal hernia repair is uncommon. We experienced a rare case where a surgical staple fell out and wandered into the peritoneal cavity causing adhesion of the small intestine.
