The repair of small ventral hernias in 28 patients was performed with a self-expanding, memory-containing reinforcement polypropylene/expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) patch and objectively assessed by simultaneous laparoscopic evaluation. The results were very disappointing, showing inadequate positioning of the hernia patch at laparoscopy in the majority of… CONTINUE READING
