The laparoscopic repair of abdominal wall hernias to treat both spontaneous and incisional hernias has good results. We report the case of a patient presenting with two concomitant pathologies, an umbilical hernia and a linea alba hernia situated on a previous incision’s scar that were treated simultaneously. Currently this patient has a heart transplant.
