Three types of minimally invasive ventral herniorrhaphies were performed in eight patients: primary repair with sutures (1 case), single-layer prosthesis repair with polytetrafluoroethylene (4 cases), and bilayer prosthesis repair with polytetrafluoroethylene and polypropylene (3 cases). One patient undergoing the bilayer repair developed a small hematoma in the subcutaneous tissue at the site of the repair, which resolved without intervention. There were no other complications, and no recurrence was noted in follow-up of 14 to 20 months.
