    Background: Numerous prospective studies and randomized controlled trials have demonstrated shorter length of stay, lower morbidity rates, and similar recurrence rates with laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (VHR) when compared to open VHR. Despite these promising results, previous data showed...

    BACKGROUND: Intraperitoneal onlay mesh repair is an established modality to treat large ventral hernias. Various techniques of laying the mesh are utilized. We present the Double Rolling and Center Hitch technique to lay a large intraperitoneal onlay mesh. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to...

    Introduction: The adequate way of mesh fixation in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is still subject to debate. So far, simulation has only been carried out in a static way, thereby omitting dynamic effects of coughing or vomiting. We developed a dynamic model of the anterior abdominal wall....
