Chronic postoperative pain is a complication of open and laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery. The most important factor to the development of postoperative pain is nerve injury. Of all nerve injuries, the damage to the femoral nerve is very rare. Electromyogram and nerve conduction velocity may provide the clue to proper treatment. The authors present a rare case of femoral hernia injury following transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal repair for a primary right inguinal hernia and emphasize the importance of non- or atraumatic mesh fixation during laparoendoscopic inguinal hernia repair.
