In this lecture, Dr. Morales Conde briefly outlines laparoscopic ventral hernia repair in complex locations (including lumbar, suprapubic, subcostal, subxiphoid, and parastomal hernias). He presents technical difficulties and complex anatomy in the lumbar area. The importance of appropriate identification of all nerves for mesh fixation is essential to prevent inguinodynia. The author also develops this identification issue based on the experience of surgeons, taking into account the indications and diagnostic imaging techniques and corresponding defect reconstructions based on anatomical landmarks in order to prevent recurrence and avoid complications.
