The management of patients with recurrent incisional hernia continues to test the skills and judgments of gastrointestinal surgeons. Several different surgical techniques and types of mesh prostheses are available for repair. The purpose of this video is to show a technique for a recurrent epigastric incisional hernia following the laparoscopic placement of an intraperitoneal prosthesis. The prosthesis was a collagen dual mesh that was placed after a previous recurrence via an anterior approach for an epigastric incisional hernia.
