BACKGROUND Ventral hernia repair (VHR) is a commonly performed surgical procedure. Unfortunately, long-term prospective information about quality of life and outcomes after VHR has been challenging to obtain. Decoupling follow-up from clinical visits via patient-reported outcomes (PROs) has been proposed as a means of achieving better long-term assessments after VHR. The Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC) is a national quality improvement (QI) effort in hernia repair that… CONTINUE READING
