Large incisional or ventral hernia repairs continue to be a challenge for general and plastic surgeons. Hernias without tangential fascial substance eventually face problems with recurrence. We present a case report of a patient who had undergone multiple repairs for a right flank incisional hernia which eventually recurred. We demonstrated the successful use of the Mitek® anchoring system in this repair. Using the Mitek® system in hernia repair is an innovative approach for large abdominal hernias with limited areas for fixation of synthetic mesh. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study
