Brief Summary:
The laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias is still a controversial therapeutic option. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic repair we compare the results of the open and laparoscopic repair of ventral hernia,. 53 patients were undergo laparoscopic or open repair of ventral hernia . All defects were estimated to be larger than 5 cm in diameter. Twenty six patients underwent attempted laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) with mesh and twenty seven patients underwent open ventral hernia repair (OVHR) with mesh

Keywords provided by Mansoura University:
ventral hernia
Ventral hernias are the second most common type of abdominal hernias after inguinal hernias.
The majority of ventral hernias are incisional hernias that develop in 11% to 20% of patients who undergo Laparotomy .
Surgeons have struggled to reduce the morbidity from incarceration (6% to 15% of cases) and strangulation (2%) of these hernias.
