About this book

Introduction

Abdominal Wall Hernias is the most up-to-date, comprehensive reference on all aspects of hernia repair. The editor, a world renowned figure in hernia surgery, has assembled a group of more than 120 experts from 16 countries to discuss state-of-the-art approaches to conventional open repairs using both tissue-to-tissue techniques as well as the use of prosthetic mesh, to the various minimally invasive approaches, the repair of recurrent and massive hernias, the pertinent anatomy, basic science, and emerging biomaterials. The authors present the full spectrum of operations and procedures to enable the reader to gain a broad knowledge of the multifaceted repair of inguinal, groin, and femoral hernias and chose the best technique. Richly illustrated with more than 700 line drawings and photographs, this textbook is a must-have reference for all practicing general surgeons and surgeons-in-training.
