Excerpt

Ventral hernia repair is one of the most commonly performed general surgery procedures with an estimated 200,000 patients requiring repair each year. Recurrence rates for primary suture repair have been reported to be as high as 54%, which has been reduced by more than half with the use of mesh. Despite its prevalence, there is much discussion on appropriate operative techniques and mesh placement for patients with ventral hernias. Literature has shown that placing mesh intraabdominally increases intraperitoneal adhesions and increases the likelihood of bowel erosion or fistulas. Intraperitoneal mesh may also negatively impact any future subsequent surgical intervention as well. …
