AbstractBackground: The risk factors for the development of incisional hernia include obesity,
diabetes, emergency surgery, postoperative wound dehiscence, smoking and
postoperative wound infection. The present study was conducted to compare different
treatment modalities of management of incisional hernia.
Materials & Methods: 80 patients of incisional hernia of both genders. The consent was
obtained from all enrolled patients.
Data such as name, age, gender etc. was recorded. Routine investigations such as CBC,
bleeding time, clotting time etc. was done. Patients were divided into 2 groups. Group I
was treated with inlay and group II were treated with sublay technique.
Results: Group I comprised of 28 males and 12 females and group II had 16 males and
24 females. Common complication reported was seroma formation 3 in group I and 1 in
group II, wound dehiscence 2 in group I and recurrence 2 in group I and 1 in group II.
Risk factors was diabetes was seen in 7 and 5 in group II, obesity was seen in 4 in group
