Although the Bassini hernioplasty has been criticized, particularly by North American surgeons because of a high incidence of recurrence, among the techniques used for inguinal hernia repair, the Bassini method, in authors' opinion, is still the best if correctly performed. In fact, the transversalis fascia division is fundamental to obtain a better mobilization of the triple layer (transversalis fascia, transversus abdominis, internal oblique) which can approach the inguinal ligament without tension. Hernia repair is achieved by suturing this layer to the pubic tubercle and inguinal ligament with separated stitches.
