  Purpose

The Danish Ventral Hernia Database (DVHD) registers 37 different perioperative parameters. The aim of present study is to use large-scale data from DVHD to uncover risk factors for readmission, reoperation (any indication), death and reoperation for recurrence after incisional hernia repair.


Condition Intervention
Incisional Hernia
Procedure: differences in surgical techniques

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Recurrence repair [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Risk factors for recurrence repair after incisional hernia repair

  • Readmission [ Time Frame: 30 days after operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Riskfactors for readmission within 30 days after incisional hernia repair

  • Reoperation [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Riskfactors for reoperation (any procedure) within 30 days after incisional hernia repair

  • Death [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Riskfactors for death within 30 days after incisional hernia repair

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Danish Ventral Hernia Database
Patients registered in the Danish Ventral Hernia Database during January 1st 2007 to december 31st 2010
Procedure: differences in surgical techniques
follow the risk for morbidity after incisional hernia repair

Detailed Description:

All principal incisional hernias registered in the Danish Ventral Hernia Database are included in the study. The included patients will be followed in up to 4 years in order to identify correlation between technical aspects of the hernia repair and postoperative morbidity.
