This paper describes a technique for the repair of an abdominal body-wall hernia in the horse using a subcutaneously implanted mesh. The results of using this technique in 40 horses with ventral midline incisional hernias as well as traumatic hernias off midline at the muscular portion of the body wall are presented. The technique provides secured repair and good cosmetic results. Moreover, wounds heal with little or no complications.
