Laparoscopic Subxiphoid and Suprapubic Hernia Repair
Subxiphoid and suprapubic hernias pose a difficult challenge as the fascial defects abut bony structures. Additionally, care must be taken during fixation of the mesh for repair in order to avoid viscera and minimize potential long-term pain. Laparoscopy is an effective approach to repair these defects. Thorough knowledge of the anatomy and careful dissection for mesh will minimize complications and allow for a durable hernia repair.
