We obtained the demographical features of the patients, size of the hernia defect, surgical technique, and informations about development of infection, recurrence and seroma formation from hospitalís database
Results: Recurrence rate was significantly different in mesh repair compared to mayo repair or primary suturization (p3cm of fascia around hernia sac.
