Obese patients have a specific risk of ventral hernia related to their morphology and to difficulties in closing port incision. The laparoscopic approach to postoperative ventral hernia was considered a challenge, but our experience demonstrates that this technique can be applied successfully in this specific group of patients. In this video, we present a typical case of postoperative ventral hernia management using a laparoscopic approach.
