The use of a sublay mesh in open surgery has been probed to be an efficient strategy for the prevention of parastomal hernia. Based on these previous reports, placing a composite mesh (polypropylene/cellulose) in an intraperitoneal fashion seems to be a good technique when a laparoscopic approach is performed. This technique is easy to perform. Mesh is kept in place with the help of tackers, normal intra-abdominal pressure, and the colon itself. We report the description of a laparoscopic technique for placing an intraperitoneal mesh for the prevention of a parastomal hernia. ©The ASCRS 2009.
