Abstract

Background: Ventral hernia is an anterior abdominal wall hernia. The present study was conducted to assess results of laparoscopic
ventral hernia repair using mesh insertion.
Materials & Methods:58 patients of ventral hernia of both genderswere operated under general anesthesia (GA). LVHR technique was
used as Closure technique. Parameters such as type of hernia, mean operative time (mins), post- operative pain on day 3, week 1, 3 and
months 3 were recorded.
Results: Out of 58 patients, males were 38 and females were 20. Type of hernia was incisional in 34 and umbilical in 24. The mean
operative time was 70.4 minutes. Complications recorded were grade I in 8 and grade II in 3 patients. The difference was significant
(P< 0.05). Pain on day 1, week 1, week 3and month 3 at trocar site was seen in 58 and 7, at suture site in 58, 12 and 6, at HD sitewas
seen in 58and 4 respectively.
Conclusion: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using mesh is an effective and safe procedure. There was less post- operative pain
observed in patients.
