    ABSTRACT: Background: Laparoscopic hernioplasty has gained popularity with significant advances in prostheses. Omega-3 coating mesh (C-Qur) is a prosthesis that can be used in the abdominal cavity, and the coating prevents adhesion of the mesh to the viscera. We planned a prospective observational study of laparoscopic hernioplasty using C-Qur. Methods: C-Qur was used in laparoscopic hernioplasty over the course of 1 year. We considered laparoscopic approaches as our primary treatment method for abdominal wall hernias. Although only a single incision was made for the majority of the laparoscopic hernioplasties, additional incisions were made when severe adhesions were encountered. For incisional or ventral hernias, a lateral lower incision was made. For inguinal hernias, an umbilical incision was made. Sex, age, diagnosis, number of incisions, additional incisions, morbidity, and follow-up period were evaluated. Results: Twenty-four patients who underwent surgery between May 2010 and April 2011 were included in this study. The median follow-up period was 14 months. The most common early complications included wound pain and edema; however, there were no persistent complications.
