The results of incisional hernia repair: a twelve year review.

Abstract

A series of 81 incisional hernia repairs is presented. Two main types of repair were performed, the 'keel' repair and a mass closure repair. In both repairs monofilament nylon was used. The recurrence rate was 46% (37 patients), the major predisposing factor being postoperative wound infection or haematoma formation. Subsequent repairs were no more successful. These poor results are compared with other published series.
