Abstract

This paper reports the complication of early incisional hernia occurring in three patients at the site of entry of a 12 mm disposable port during laparoscopic surgery. To avoid this complication, it is recommended that a 12 mm port be introduced through muscle rather than fascia and, following its removal, the defect in the abdominal wall be closed by sutures.
