OBJECTIVE: To evaluate laparoscopic repair of ventral hernia by intraperitoneal suturing method.
METHOD: Ten patients with a mean BMI of 31.84 Kg/M2 underwent a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair between 2015 to 2016. A laparoscopic approach with three trocar incisions was used to repair ventral hernia; intraperitoneal fixtion of mesh was done using slow absorbing sutures and short-term follow-up results up to May 2017 are reported.
CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair by intra peritoneal suturing method is a easy, safe, and effective procedure in the treatment of ventral hernia in our short term experience.
Laparoscopic repair of incisional hernia and ventral hernia appears to be safe, especially with the use of Gore-Tex mesh, and is proving to be effective as it decreases pain, complications, hospital stay, and recurrences.
