Posterior rectus sheath hernias are a rare type of interparietal hernia previously described in a limited number of case reports. There has only been one published case report of a laparoscopic mesh repair. We present a case series of two posterior rectus sheath hernias diagnosed at laparoscopy. A preperitoneal mesh herniorrhaphy was performed to repair the defects. To our knowledge this is the first time such a repair has been performed for this type of hernia. Both hernia necks were infra-umbilical in position. In all previously reported case reports the hernial necks were supraumbilical in position.This is the first case series to be published of this exceedingly rare type of interparietal hernia.
