Repair of Incisional Hernia

Repair of Incisional HerniaThis type of ventral hernia bulges through a surgical scar or a previous incision site. Mostly appearing after 5 years, it can even occur soon after the procedure, or even decades after. A third of those who have undergone abdominal surgery, such as appendectomy, often develop this. Among 5 out of a thousand patients develop these hernias at the laparoscopic port site, however, more patients, 150 out of a thousand people, are likely to have them after a previous open abdominal incision.
