|Dear Mrs Rossell
Please let us know that is your renal carcinoma is fully cured or you are still in the process of its treatment. If the entire treatment of cancer is over than laparoscopic repair of hernia is a very good option for you. Even the large hernias can be repaired by laparoscopy very effectively.
Choices will make about 3-4 small incisions in your abdomen. A port is inserted into one of the slits, and carbon dioxide gas inflates the abdomen. This process allows choices to see inside of your abdomen more easily. A laparoscope is inserted through another port.
The laparoscope looks like a telescope having a light and camera around the end therefore the surgeon can easily see within the abdomen. Surgical instruments are placed in the other small openings and used to repair the ventral hernia. Your surgeon first will have to remove all the intestines who have become entrapped into the hernia. This method alone can be very difficult and time-consuming. Following the intestines have been removed from the hernia, the repair usually is done by putting a soft plastic mesh over the hole (the hernia), and stapling this mesh towards the surrounding fringe of the abdominal wall.
If you have a large hernia, you might need a large sheet of mesh, more than One foot across. Following this has been accomplished, the co2 is released from the abdomen with the slits, and then these sites are closed with sutures or staples, or engrossed in glue-like bandage and steri-strips.
