The objective of the study was to analyze the experience of the Department of Surgery of two institutions of high complexity in Colombia, with the extra peritoneal ventral hernia repair by laparoscopy during the last 2 years and characterize the clinical and surgical aspects most relevant in the procedures performed.
Observational, descriptive, retrospective study, case series type: collection of data by clinical history and analysis thereof including calculation of frequency and central tendency measurements.
59 Cases of Ventral Hernia Repair by laparoscopy, 41 with Transabdominal Preperitoneal approach and 18 totally Extraperitoneal. In total, 7 complications were presented as follows: 1 Case of recurrence, 1 case of chronic pain, 2 complications Dindo–Clavien IIIa and 1 complication IIIb.
The repair of the ventral hernia by Extraperitoneal route is an innovative approach of increasing popularity, which avoids the contact of the mesh with the intestines, thus avoiding the potential complications that this situation generates with good outcomes and at a lower cost.
