Comparison of Open and Laparoscopic Prosthetic Repair of Large Ventral Hernias

Pratik H Vyas, Amit H Joshi, Nayan Odedra, Kush S Shah.

"Introduction: Open ventral hernia repair is associated with significant morbidity and high recurrence rates. Recently, the laparoscopic approach has evolved as an attractive alternative. Our objective was to compare open with laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs.
Methods: 50 laparoscopic and 22 open ventral hernia repairs were included in the study. All patients underwent a tension-free repair with retromuscular placement of the prosthesis.
Results: No significant difference was found in the operative time between the 2 groups (laparoscopic 132.7 min vs open 152.7 min). Laparoscopic repair was associated with a significant reduction in the postoperative narcotic requirements (P
