    Recent studies have noted advantages of laparoscopic over open repair of ventral hernias. Because few reports have involved comparison with traditional repair we report a comparison between laparoscopic and open approaches. We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients undergoing ventral...

    Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair has many advantages over the open approach. Mesh placement and orientation to overlap the hernia defect is a crucial step. The current techniques for mesh placement are time-consuming. A simple technique for mesh placement during laparoscopic ventral hernia...

    Laparoscopic repair is a safe and effective method for treating ventral hernias. Although the risk of bowel injury is low, its management is controversial. When injury is suspected or repaired, the risk of infection might prohibit a repair with prosthetic mesh. The timing of safe mesh placement...

    Acting as a pneumatic tissue expander, progressive preoperative pneumoperitoneum (PPP) pressurizes the abdomen to prepare patients with giant hernias and loss of domain for hernia repair. We review our experience with PPP. Between 2006 and 2008, a prospective hernia database revealed nine...

    Spigelian hernias, also called as lateral ventral hernias, are rare hernias to present themselves in clinical practice. The significance of these hernias lies in the fact that they are commonly intraparietal hernias and are, hence, difficult to diagnose clinically. Moreover, the neck of these...
