Özet

Objective: Ventral hernias smaller than 3 cm are commonly repaired via minor surgical interventions. Primary repair and/or repair with mesh are the most commonly used techniques, but there is no consensus in the literature about the most appropriate repair method. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the early results of patients who underwent primary transcutaneous laparoscopic ventral hernia repair for a ventral hernia smaller than 3 cm.
