We describe (for the first time) a laparoscopic approach to repair an acquired superior triangle lumbar hernia in a morbidly obese woman by using prosthetic mesh. Such a technique provides an excellent anatomic view, thus avoiding injury to structures in proximity to the hernia during repair; eventually the well-known advantages of such approach result.
