Primary suture repair increases the risk for recurrence, the fact of benefit of mesh repair in elective situations is documented, and many studies have reported beneficial outcomes of mesh hernioplasty in emergency situations. Still there is controversy of using such grafts in presence of intestinal resection.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • wound infection [ Time Frame: 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • operative time [ Time Frame: 3hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    the time from skin incision up to skin closure

  • morbidity [ Time Frame: 5 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    the perioperative complications

  • recurrence of the hernia [ Time Frame: 6months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Recurrence of the hernia was defined as an apparent swelling or a palpable defect at the previous surgery site detected clinically or radiologically by ultrasound if needed
