The investigators are performing a genetic study of patients with multiple hernias (at least 3 primary hernias) versus a healthy control group. This genetic information is compared with circulating and subcutaneously biomarkers such as matrix-metalloproteinases (MMP's).
The hypothesis is that patients with multiple hernias have different expression of specific genes compared to the healthy control group.

Other examinations performed on the patients enrolled in this study:
- Ultrasound (US) examination of the abdominal aorta to discover possible abdominal aortic aneurysms.
- Beightons score to evaluate the degree of joint hypermobility.
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Estimated Enrollment :||60 participants|
|Observational Model:||Case Control|
|Official Title:||Genetic Differences Between Patients With Multiple Hernia and a Healthy Control Group|
|Study Start Date :||June 2009|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||June 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2011|
Patients with more than 3 primary hernias
Patients without hernias
- Genetic expression of relevant genes between the groups [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Amount of serological biomarkers (MMP's) correlated to gene expression [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
