Intraperitoneal underlay mesh (IPUM) technique, commonly referred to as intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) technique, has been used for decades to allow for minimally invasive repair of ventral hernias.

This video reviews the approach and some of the reasons why I still maintain it as an element of my practice.
