Risk Factors for Poor Outcome After Epigastric and Umbilical Hernia Repair
Umbilical and epigastric hernia repairs are common and performed by numerous surgical techniques. Considering that the hernia repairs in general are relatively small and simple procedures there are disproportionate poor results.
The aim of present study is to determine surgical risk factors for readmission after umbilical and epigastric hernia repair and to report risk factors for later reoperation for recurrence.

- readmission [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Riskfactors for readmission within 30 days after umbilical or epigastric hernia repair
- reoperation for recurrence [ Time Frame: up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Risk factors for recurrence repair after umbilical or epigastric hernia repair

Danish Ventral Hernia Database
Patients registered in the Danish Ventral Hernia Database during January 1st 2007 to december 31st 2010
All elective umbilical or epigastric 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.
