    Background: Incisional hernia is a common complication after a major abdominal gynecologic operation. Laparoscopic repair with a mesh prosthesis is a surgical modality of choice as an alternative to conventional open repair. Case: A 52-year-old woman underwent radical abdominal surgery in 2001...

    Incisional hernias remain a surgical challenge when balancing surgical morbidity, functional restoration, and risk of recurrence. Laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) placement reduces postoperative wound infections and allows fast patient recovery. Yet, current IPOM techniques do not...

    Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is an accepted method for incisional hernia repair. Although techniques vary, transfascial suturing of the mesh to the abdominal wall has been proposed as a viable way to fixate the mesh and reduce recurrence rates. We report a 54-year-old woman who had...

    Repair of inguinal hernia is the most commonly performed surgical procedure. Both open and laparoscopic methods are accepted modalities of surgical treatment. Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) and total extraperitoneal (TEP) are the two types of laparoscopic repair of the inguineal hernia. The...
