Abstract

A clear definition of “complex abdominal wall hernia” is missing, though the term is often used [1]. The aim of a consensus meeting was to reach consensus on criteria used to define a patient with “complex” hernia [1]. Consensus was reached on 22 patient and hernia variables for “complex” hernia criteria inclusion which were grouped under four categories:
  1. 1.

    Size and location

     
  2. 2.

    Contamination/soft tissue condition

     
  3. 3.

    Patient history/risk factors

     
  4. 4.

    Clinical scenario
