The laparoscopic repair of incarcerated incisional hernias is still debated in the literature. The recent EAES/EHS guidelines state that laparoscopic surgery is not contraindicated and may be considered in selected patients with incarcerated hernia. This video shows the case of an 83-year-old woman with an incarcerated incisional hernia in the left iliac fossa (L2 zone – W2) successfully managed laparoscopically with an intraperitoneal onlay mesh reinforcement (IPOM-plus).
