Last verified: December 2011
The Danish Ventral Hernia Database (DVHD) registers 37 different perioperative parameters. The aim of present study is to use large-scale data from DVHD to uncover risk factors for readmission, reoperation (any indication), death and reoperation for recurrence after parastomal hernia repair.

Condition Intervention
Parastomal Hernia
Procedure: differences in surgical techniques

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Nationwide Prospective Study of Surgical Risk Factors for Poor Outcome After Parastomal Hernia Repair

Study Start Date: January 2007
Study Completion Date: October 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions

Patients registered in the Danish Ventral Hernia database
Procedure: differences in surgical techniques
follow the risk for morbidity after incisional hernia repair

Detailed Description:
All principal parastomal hernias registered in the Danish Ventral Hernia Database are included in the study. The included patients will be followed in up to 4 years in order to identify correlation between technical aspects of the hernia repair and postoperative morbidity.

Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
All incisional hernia repairs registered in the Danish National Hernia Database from January 1st 2007 to December 31st 2010

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All parastomal hernia repairs registered in the Danish National Ventral Hernia Database
