A 67-year-old male with a history of a conventional right colectomy and hypertension was referred to our department for an incisional hernia and abdominal discomfort. Physical examination also showed a supraumbilical defect that was confirmed with a computed tomography scan. Laparoscopic Rives technique repair was done to repair the defect avoiding direct contact of the mesh with the intra-abdominal viscera.
