AimTo assess the long-term incidence and predictive factors for recurrence after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using a bridging technique.MethodsThe study group consisted of 213 consecutive patients operated by laparoscopy for primary ventral (n = 158) or incisional hernia (n = 55) between 2001 and 2014. Patients had a repair without fascia closure by intra-peritoneal onlay placement of a Parietex® composite mesh centred on the defect with an overlap of at least 3 cm. Clinical outcome was… CONTINUE READING
