Normal population
Procedure: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair
Patients operated with laparoscopic repair of ventral or incisional hernia

Detailed Description:
CA-125 and other inflammatory markers as body temperature, CRP, PCT, leucocytes and neutrophils measured pre- and post-operatively - correlated to trauma size i.e. area of dissection, mesh size, number of fixation points etc.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adults admitted for ventral or incisional hernia repair

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Loss-of-domain
  • ASA above III
  • Liver failure
  • Abnormal CA-125 prior to surgery
