Abstract

Ventral hernia repair is frequently performed with one of a number of mesh products, usually with good results. The current emphasis on laparoscopic repair has resulted in multiple composite mesh products for use in the peritoneal cavity. The addition of a second layer of more inert material to the mesh is intended to prevent adhesions with the underlying viscera, and multiple studies demonstrate effectiveness in doing this. Despite this, occasional complications may still present. We present the case of a 65-year-old man coming to our clinic 5 years after a third ventral hernia repair/revision with composite mesh.
