Background. The stability of the lower abdominal wall may play a considerable role in the development of inguinal hernia. Therefore, the strength of the individual wall layers needs to be quantified. Despite numerous advances in hernia repair, comparatively few systematic biomechanic and morphometric analyses have been performed. Our aim was to establish and apply a standardised procedure for testing the abdominal wall layers’ stability. Methods. After dissecting the abdominal walls of 16… CONTINUE READING
