This video demonstrates a laparoscopic repair of lower midline ventral hernia. The surgeon uses three ports to first reduce hernia contents and then uses 5 sutures to approximate the edges of the hernia defect and invaginate the hernia sac in an attempt to reduce postoperative seroma. He then completes the repair using a dual mesh, which is anchored to the abdominal wall by sutures.
