A hernia occurs when there is a hole in the muscles of the abdominal wall, allowing a loop of intestine or abdominal tissue to push through the muscle layer. A ventral hernia is a hernia that occurs at any location along the midline (vertical center) of the abdomen wall. There are three types of ventral hernia: Epigastric (stomach area) hernia, Umbilical (belly button) hernia, Incisional hernia.
