We present the laparoscopic repair of a large incisional hernia secondary to placement of a subcostal ICD pulse generator. Laparoscopic repair of large incisional hernias provides a unique and technically feasible form of repair in the 2%-13% of patients who will develop an incisional hernia following an abdominal surgery. This form of hernia repair is associated with minimal morbidity and prompt resumption of patient activities and work.
