Abstract

Incisional hernia is an iatrogenic problem. Several techniques have been used to repair it. In this prospective study comparison has been made between results of repair by rectus everting, double breasting of anterior abdominal wall and mesh implantation. A total of 30 patients were included in this study divided into three groups 10 patients in each. A one year follow up was arranged, and results were compared with each other and with various international studies available. Among the various complications i.e., wound infection, haematoma, seroma, stitch sinus formation were almost comparable expect recurrence rate which was nil in this study (all three groups), as compared to significant number in international studies.
