A practical analysis of incisional hernia treatment and repair

Dr. Katragadda Satyendra Kumar and Dr. B Ramesh Babu
Background: A common surgical ailment, incisional hernias have been reported to occur in between 5% and 11% of people who have had abdominal surgeries. This study aims to assess the severity of the problem and the several ways that mesh repair surgery can be performed in our specific setting.
Methods: This is a prospective study of thirty patients diagnosed with incisional hernia was carried out at the Department of Surgery, Mahavir Institute of Medical Sciences, Vikarabad, Telangana, India between July 2015 to June 2016.
Results: When most of the patients first presented, they had an incisional hernia in the subumbilical area. Patients who had overlay mesh repair did not have a recurrence of their incisional hernia, however two of the patients who had received inlay mesh repair did. Overlay mesh repair seems to be clearly superior to inlay repair, given that there was no recurrence over the comparative follow-up period of three to twelve months.
Conclusions: Based on the research findings, it has been shown that overlay mesh repair is a more favorable option compared to inlay mesh repair in the management of incisional hernias.
