This video demonstrates the anatomy and surgical repair of perineal hernia. This is a rare hernia and it requires careful dissection of the hernia sac from adjoining structures including the bladder and the vagina. The hernia defect in the pelvic floor is repaired primarily and reinforced with a piece of mesh. The peritoneum is closed over the mesh.
