Primary Outcome Measures:
- Hernia recurrence [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy at 12 months after repair of small and medium ventral hernias using PVP™. All patients operated between March 2009 and February 2011 at the participating centers, will be evaluated and described. Patients will be evaluated by clinical investigation, questioning and ultrasound. The investigators' main focus will be the incidence of complications related to the use of the device, during the first year. Also the investigators look at recurrence rate at 12 months, occurrence of pain at 12 months and foreign body feeling. The trial can be seen as a quality control of a cohort of patients treated with an innovative mesh device. No sponsoring from the company J&J will be asked or accepted.
