Ventral hernia is a common complication of abdominal surgeries, with the incidence of up to 20% in some series. Giant ventral hernia is that with a neck more than 10 cm wide. The loss of abdominal domain due to the shift of viscera into the hernia sac could lead to the complication after surgery. A 54-year-old female presented with a giant pedunculated ventral hernia. She had low tension mesh repair through a transverse suprapubic incision. The surgical repair of giant hernia with mesh has led to reduced complications. The sublay mesh repair method has further reduced the rate of underlay mesh recurrence.
