Diagnosing spigelian hernias through physical examination can be particularly challenging. Increasingly, laparoscopy is being used to both confirm the diagnosis and carry out therapeutic repair. Here, we describe 2 cases of successful laparoscopic repair of spigelian hernias using an Endocatch assisted sutured technique. A review of the literature describing the role of laparoscopy in the management of spigelian hernia is also provided.
