The article describes the experience of application of multi-layer non-adhesive surgical mesh ProceedTM Ethicon when performing laparoscopic hernioplasty. The result of treatment of 38 patients with small (up to 2 cm) and average (up to 4 cm) hernial gates with ventral hernias of anterior abdominal wall is presented. Using the described technology, the average hospitalization period was 1,8 day, the intensity of pain on the visual analogue scale 25±19% in the first day and 7±5% 1 month after surgery. Bleeding, bowel damage, nudity, and hernia recurrence were not observed.
