Herniorrhaphy or Hernioplasty is the surgical treatment for hernia. This surgical procedure is mainly done using local or general anesthesia with laparoscope or conventional incision. Laparoscopic hernioplasty is the best suited laparoscopic technique for almost all the abdominal hernias. This technique has gained its approval in recent treatment and is being widely used. Despite the fact that it is for the most part of safe operation, postoperative complications are found to be less. The recovery time after the surgery is found to be 1 to 2 weeks. Single port laparoscopy is the marginally invasive surgical process where the surgery takes place by a single entry point mainly the umbilicus. This single port technique leaves only a single scar. Multiport laparoscopic technique is the traditional technique where it uses many entry points for operation. Thus the single port laparoscopic technique consists of many advantages like faster recovery time, less blood loss, less post-operative pain etc. This study systematically reviewed the existing literatures for comparing the single site over the multiport hernia repair. The outcomes like hospital stay, operative time, complications and blood loss are reviewed. The remedial advantages in the general management of hernia are reviewed in detail. This review concludes that the single port laparoscopic hernioplasty is the most advantaged technique than the multiport.
