This is the case of a patient referred for a symptomatic umbilical hernia, only partially reducible. The aim of the procedure is to perform a laparoscopic exploration to reduce the incarcerated omentum and to perform a laparoscopic repair using a composite mesh covered by a non-adherent collagen layer. This video demonstrates the technique used to introduce, position, and fix the mesh using absorbable tackers.
