Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia Repair With Mesh Positioning System

George Rossidis, MD, Bo T Neichoy, MD, Angel M Caban, MD. University of Florida, Department of Surgery

 

We present the case of a 47 years old female status post open appendectomy for perforated appendicitis, with a resultant  8×7 cm incisional hernia. An alternative hernia repair is presented with the use of a mesh positioning system, a single tubing system connected to an inflatable balloon, which atttaches and secures the mesh to the  anterior abdominal wall. The procedure is described and  the result is shown. The patient recuperated very well and was discharged on postoperative day 1. The mesh positioning system is a promising alternative to the standard laparoscopic ventral hernia repair approach.
