A wide variety of surgical options exist for abdominal wall reconstruction. Part of the key to success, however, consist on choosing the operation that will give the most functional and aesthetic result while focusing on measures to decrease the incidence of catastrophic complications and need for reoperation. In this article, we review reconstructive modalities for abdominal wall defects, with special attention to complex ventral hernias and components separation techniques. Our description of recent scientific advances and the emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach to patient care reflects current trend and going forward to the use of bioprosthetic materials.
