Laparoscopic repair of ventral incisional hernia is a relatively new procedure. Recent studies have confirmed that this technique is associated with minimal postoperative morbidity, a short hospital stay, and a low recurrence rate. Spiral tackers made of titanium are usually used for the safe and secure fixation of the mesh. We report the case of a small bowel perforation due to protruding spiral tackers that occurred 17 days after an initially uneventful clinical course.
