    Impressive suturing of the anterior abdominal wall. I did not hear anything about the long term recurrence rate. Given that it is not a tension free repair, I suspect a high recurrence rate. It was interesting that he made the point to avoid mesh. I don't recall if biologic mesh available was in 1999. The use of biologic mesh seems like an attractive option to me now. I look forward to additional comments.

    Slick suturing indeed. The auto- reduction during insufflation was neat to watch. I too wonder if a biologic graft would have been nice to add (if had access to in '99). Did the authors have a size criteria for there repair using this technique? Thanks. --STS

    nice, simple repair, but unlikly to last. An update in recurrence rate would be interesting to see
