Background The complications of intraperitoneal onlay mesh repair for ventral hernia has favored sublay mesh placement like open Rives–Stoppa repair (ORS). There was a need for low-cost laparoscopic trans-abdominal repair using a polypropylene mesh (PPM) with sublay, midline closure and addition of posterior component separation (PCS) by transversus abdominis release (TAR). Methods The techniques used three or six operating ports with triangulation. After adhesiolysis, a transverse incision was… Expand
