The increasing proportion of laparoscopic interventions in the surgical centers has, also, determined an increased incidence of specific complications, such as trocar hernia. Nowadays, there is no unanimously agreed concensus regarding the optimal closure technique of the trocar incision, wether it should include the suture of the aponeurosis or not at the 10 mm ports. There is, also, no consensus regarding the proper surgical technique for the trocar hernia repair- alloplastic or tissue repair technique.The purpose of the study is to present our experience on the alloplastic repair of the trocar hernias. It is a retrospective study that analyzes the results obtained by our clinicalteam regarding the alloplastic repair of the trocar hernias, over a five-year period, between January 2011 and December 2015. The recurrence and the occurrence rates of different complications (seroma, neuroma with postoperative pain, parietal infiltration, infections and mesh rejection), depending on the type of mesh used for the surgical repair,are studied.
