KEY POINTS: HERNIA REPAIR OUTCOMES

  • Ventral hernia repairs (VHR) may be performed through open or laparoscopic techniques, and with or without mesh.
  • Complication rates may be affected by various factors such as mesh placement and mesh position technique.

Key Points

  • Traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation has an incidence estimated of 2% across the population.
  • 4-55% incidence of neurological complications after dislocations is reported in the literature.
  • Neurological...
