|Component Separation-notice the release of the external oblique|
This young man came to us last year. He had an intraabdominal disaster-ruptured appendix with delayed presentation and severe peritonitis. He survived this problem after multiple surgeries with an open abdomen. Finally we closed the wound leaving a large ventral hernia. Today we operated after 6 months recovery. We were able to close the fascia with the technique of component separation.
