The research work objective was to examine the results of intraperitoneal plastics in the hernias of anterior abdominal wall. The experience of treatment of 89 patients with uncomplicated umbilical and postoperative ventral hernias was analized. The surgical treatment included an open intraperitoneal prosthetic hernioplasty. The hernial sac was not removed during the operation. The original techniques of treatment of hernia sac were used. Anatomical and morphological features in the structure of middle ventral hernias and their pathophysiological assessment were revealed. Practical recommendations for technology of intraperitoneal prosthesis were given. The early postoperative complications occurred: seroma (n=2), the outflow of serous fluid drainage for 5 days (n=1), infiltration of the umbilical area (n=3), suppuration of wounds (n=1). Vacuum drainage was performed in 24 patients after removal of large hernial defects. During the period from 6 months to 4 years recurrences were not revealed. The intraperitoneal surgery using a complex of musculo-aponeurotic tissues provided hernial implant fixation. Operation without the removal of the hernial sac reduced the trauma intervention. Method of suturing the surgical wound reduced the time of drainage and reduced the number of wound complications
