The repair of a defect in the anterior abdominal wall with minimal invasive (laparoscopic) or conventionally (open) technique

A defect in the abdominal wall through which organs can protrude is called hernia. Hernias may occur spontaneously (primary hernia) or at the site of a previous surgical incision (incisional hernia). A hernia is usually recognized as a bulge or tear under the abdominal skin. Occasionally it causes no discomfort for the patient but it can hurt while lifting heavy objects, coughing, or having bowel movements. Also after prolonged standing or sitting it can cause heavy discomfort.
