Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. risk factors for emergency ventral hernia repair [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    evaluation of risk factors (hernia size, hernia type, type of surgery, age and gender) for poor outcome after emergency ventral hernia repair.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 30-day readmission [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    evaluation of risk factors (hernia size, hernia type, type of surgery, age and gender) for 30-day readmission after emergency ventral hernia repair

  2. 30-day reoperation [ Time Frame: 30 day ]
    evaluation of risk factors (hernia size, hernia type, type of surgery, age and gender) for 30-day reaoperation after emergency ventral hernia repair

  3. 30-day mortality [ Time Frame: 30 day ]
    evaluation of risk factors (hernia size, hernia type, type of surgery, age and gender) for 30-day mortality after emergency ventral hernia repair
