Severe intraabdominal sepsis sometimes recquires very aggressive surgery with repeated surgical revisions of abdominal cavity. This often leads to large ventral hernia. The authors present one of the possibilities of surgical management of the hernia using fascia lata graft. This method is easy to perform and cost effective because of autologous material, which is most ideal from the point of biological view.

Key words:
