Abstract

Laparoscopic prosthetic ventral hernioplasty using the composite polypropylene/ePTFE mesh offers short hospital stay and acceptable complications for primary and recurrent ventral hernias. Disadvantage of the composite mesh is the difficulty to roll this product into a sufficiently small size to permit its easy introduction into the abdominal cavity.
