This is the case of a 69 years old diabetic female patient with history of subtotal colectomy for advanced colon cancer a year ago.
She had a surgical complication of the abdominal wall called postincisional hernia and came to surgical consult because of this giant ventral hernia. This is one of the largest hernias I’ve ever seen.
A laparoscopic repair of the defect was made with Prolene mesh (2 sheets of 12″ x 12″) sutured to the fascia and now she is doing very well.
