 [Introduction] We retrospectively compared the short term outcomes of the Lichtenstein(LICH) method and the totally extraperitoneal repair (TEP) method in day surgery for unilateral inguinal hernia. [Methods] The data of 248 cases of Lichtenstein and 120 cases of TEP, performed from February 2017 to March 2019 were analyzed. [Results] The mean operation time and the postoperative stay in TEP group were significantly longer than Lichtenstein group. There were no differences in postoperative analgesics, pain scores in Day1 and return to work. In TEP group abnormal sensation was significantly less and no significant differences were observed in hemorrhage and seroma. [Conclusion] Between the two groups there are no significant differences in postoperative pain and recovery of daily life.
