Abstract

Giant hernias with loss of domain induce physiological modifications that impair quality of life and make more complex their surgical management. A good preparation of patients before surgery is the key to an eventless postoperative course. The progressive pre-operative pneumoperitoneum (PPP) is one of the described abdominal augmentation protocols which can help patients to tolerate hernia content reintegration and avoid components separation technique during hernia repair. This article describes the management of these complex patients. We also report the case of a patient who follows successfully a PPP protocol.
