This method is thought to have merit as it uses the pressure of the abdominal contents to actually push the implant against the underside of the abdominal wall, holding it in place. But this is not an easy technique. In order to make sure the mesh does not dislodge after surgery during the first few days or later, many sutures are placed around the edge of the mesh to “tack” it in place. Trying to place these sutures can be difficult due to lack of space and vision, plus the close proximity of blood vessel and nerves.
