Abstract

There is a common doubt regarding the application of polypropylene mesh to treat incarcerated and strangulated hernias due to the possibility of surgical site infection. We aimed to investigate the results of mesh repair of incarcerated and strangulated hernias, and to evaluate the incidence of wound infection and recurrence.
