About this book


"The best book about hernias on the market (G. Wantz). Excellent topic always timely should appeal to a broad range of general surgeons".
The result of a European-American co-operation, whose joint efforts have dramatically reduced the rate of recurrent groin hernia, burst abdomen and incisional hernia in patients.
The contributors to this updated volume are among the most renowned specialists in the field and here they present personal accounts of the once controversial techniques they have now perfected.
New sections have been added to include such revolutionary techniques as prosthetic mesh and laparoscopic surgery.
