The surgical treatment of large umbilical hernias includes a parietal reinforcement by means of a synthetic prosthesis. The laparoscopic approach with double mesh placement has proven to provide several benefits over the open approach. Here, we present the case of a patient presenting with a painful irreducible umbilical hernia. The video demonstrates the placement of an intraperitoneal prosthesis as well as an original herniorrhaphy technique using a non-absorbable suture.
