AbstractAn abdominal wall hernia, or a ventral hernia which is a age old disease, often occurs at the weakest point of the abdominal wall or it may occur through potentially weaker section of the abdominal wall. It includes umbilical, incisional, epigastric, supraumbilical, infraumbilical etc. There are many technique available to repair the abdominal wall hernia. It has evolved from simple repair of the hernia to strengthening of the abdominal wall with prosthetic materials.
A total of 52 cases ; 26 cases randomly to two groups, either tacker or glue fixation. These patients were followed up in the surgical outpatient clinic once in week for 1st month, then once in a fortnight for 2nd month ,a minimum period of up to 6 months.
Time taken for completion of surgery was less in glue fixation, Post operative hospital stay was less in glue fixation group, Cost of surgery was more in tacker fixation
