  With great advancement and plenty techniques for ventral hernia repair including open, laparoscopic and robotic methods. With various sites for mesh placement like onlay, sublay, underlay or even intraperitoneal. Limited options will be available in emergency situations especially in obstructed huge ventral hernia with loss of domain. Both component separation technique (CST) with mesh reinforcement and bridged repair are feasible. Further studies to evaluate which type is superior to the other is still required.
