A technique for laparoscopic repair of herniation of the anterior abdominal wall using a composite mesh prosthesis
Improved laparoscopic techniques have engendered many new gastrointestinal and other intracavity abdominal procedures. Groin hernias have also been repaired with the assistance of the laparoscope via both transperitoneal and properitoneal approaches, but less emphasis has been placed upon repair of hernias of the anterior abdominal wall. A technique for the transperitoneal, laparoscopic repair of anterior abdominal wall hernias using a composite mesh prosthesis is presented. The technique is applicable to hernias in many locations.
