Single-Port Technique and Robotics in Ventral Hernia Repair
Ventral hernia can be broadly divided into primary and secondary. Secondary hernias are mainly incisional hernias, and the complexity of these hernias still poses a challenge to the surgeons. Open approach for these complex hernias can be associated with a prolonged hospital stay and poor pain control. The laparoscopic approach has given hope for this particular group of patients by minimizing the surgical trauma and minimizing the postoperative pain and complications.
