|Hernia||Procedure: Metallic Fasteners and Sutures Procedure: Metallic Fasteners Alone|
This is a randomized study in which subjects will undergo one or two currently accepted techniques of mesh fixation during laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. Subject will undergo mesh fixation with either trans-abdominal sutures and metallic tacks or metallic tacks only.
Pain will be assessed through week 12, and hernia recurrence will be assessed for 2 years after surgery. Subjects will complete pain questionnaires at baseline, each day during hospital stay, and at follow-up visits at 2, 6, and 12 weeks after discharge. Quality of life questionnaires will be completed at baseline, at discharge from hospital, and during follow-up visits at 2, 6, and 12 weeks after discharge.
