Traumatic Ventral Hernia (TVH) is a type of hernia that occurs after high impact blunt injury to the abdominal wall. In the current report, we present a 27-year-old patient who presented to our trauma center after motor vehicle collision. She was diagnosed with TVH lateral to the linea semilunaris at the level of umbilicus, involving the transversus abdominis, internal oblique, and external oblique muscle. She underwent successful laparoscopic TVH repair. Laparoscopic TVH repair is a safe and effective strategy, especially for stable patients with a small defect. Primary closure and mesh placement are recommended, and a laparoscopic technique is a safe and effective procedure.
