Abstract

Objective:  This prospective study was designed to see the outcomes in two different types of surgical repairs (suture or mesh) of primary ventral hernia.

Methods:  A total of 70 adult patients under went for elective primary ventral hernia suture or mesh repair at surgical unit-I of Peoples Medical College Hospital Nawabshah and Surgical Unit-I from March-2010 to Feb-2016 were included in this study on the basis of inclusion – exclusion criteria. Patient’s demographic characteristics, operative details, post-operative out-comes (complications and recurrence) were studied.

Results:  A total number of 70 consecutive patients having primary ventral hernia under went for an elective open repair either with suture (32/45.7%) or synthetic mesh (38/54.3%) were evaluated in this study. Among these patients 52 (74.2%) and 18 (25.8%) were female and male respectively, with mean age of 51.5 ± 12. A total of 3(7.89%) patients had recurrence with Mesh Repair and 06(18.75%) with suture repair at 3 years follow-up, p-value = 0.176.

Conclusion:  The mesh repair in ventral hernia has low wound complications and less recurrence of the hernia when compared with suture technique.
