Abstract

Ventral hernia is a common problem seen by the surgeon. Repair of large or multiple recurrent hernias is frequently difficult, with high recurrence rates. Intraparietal retrorectus placement of prosthetic mesh is an effective method of repair, with low recurrence rates, low morbidity and high patient satisfaction. This technique is briefly described.
