Lap Ventral Hernia

Incisional/ventral hernias are defects that appear at the site of a prior surgical incision.
An incisional hernia can develop in the abdominal wall around a previous incision. It usually arises in the abdominal wall where a previous surgical incision was made. This results in a bulge or a tear in the area where the abdominal muscles have weakened. Incisional hernias can increase in size with time.

A hernia occurs when part of an organ (usually the bowel or intestine) protrudes through a weak point or tear in the thin muscular wall that holds the abdominal organs in place.

Hernias can develop around the navel, in the groin, or any place where you may have had a surgical incision. Some hernias are present at birth. Others develop slowly over a period of months or years. Hernias also can come on quite suddenly.
