Sociodemographic, clinical and surgical characteristics of the population with lateral incisional hernias at the Hospital Universitario Mayor between the years 2015 - 2018

Project Details


Lateral incisional hernias have been little studied. Its surgical management is challenging due to bony prominences and neurovascular structures, which make mesh fixation difficult.
The objective of this study is to describe our series of lateral hernias in order to show the experience in terms of the type of mesh, the surgical approach and recurrence and thus broaden the knowledge about this increasingly important pathology.
