The parastomal hernia is a direct consequence of making the stoma. Although all the efforts used in its prevention, this condition is a frequent long-term complication that increases with time. Management of the hernia is always surgical and different techniques have been proposed. In this article, the authors present a brief revision of the surgical treatment and present their own technique. The defect is assessed by videolaparoscopy and correction is performed with an intraperitoneal mesh; we call this technique "tie knot". In our 17 patients' series, we observed good results and no recurrence until now.
