Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Hernia, Abdominal

  • Recurrence rates are as high as 49% when an autogenous repair is performed, and as high as 11% when prosthetic mesh is used as a "bridge" or "onlay." METHODS: This study analyzes results of midline abdominal hernia repair in 106 cases using prosthetic mesh, in the retrorectus position, as described by Stoppa and Wantz [11].
