To systematically compare the tacker mesh fixation (TMF) with the suture mesh fixation (SMF) in laparoscopic incisional and ventral hernia (LIVH) repair. Trials evaluating the TMF with the SMF in LIVH repair were analysed using the statistical tool RevMan®. Combined dichotomous and continuous data were expressed as odds ratio (OR) and mean difference (MD), respectively.
