The reconstruction of abdominal wall defects remains one of the most challenging dilemmas facing surgeons. Congenital, acquired or post traumatic defects all present unique challenges to the reconstructive surgeon. A multitude of prosthetic materials are available to improve outcomes in ventral hernia repair. Both synthetic and biologic meshes have revolutionized approaches to the surgical management of abdominal wall reconstruction. The surgeon can choose from both laparoscopic approaches and open repairs or in certain circumstances a combination of the two. Even though ventral hernia repair remains one of the most common procedures performed, there is little consensus as to the best surgical technique, prosthetic material of choice, or strategies to repair complex defects.
