Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Recurrence rate at 12 months determined by clinical examination [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Intraoperative complications [ Time Frame: peri-procedural ]

    Defined as complications occurring during index-procedure from "skin-into-skin". The following events must be reported in the case report form:

    • enterotomy (bowel injury)
    • major bleeding requiring blood transfusion or reintervention
    • complications due to anesthesia
    • minor bleeding at a trocar insertion site

  • Post-operative complications [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]

    Defined as complications up to 30 days after index-procedure. The following events should be reported in the case report form:

    • local numbness
    • hematoma
    • seroma
    • superficial trocar site infection
    • mesh infection
    • hernia recurrence
    • death

  • Seroma [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    The rate of seroma at 1 month after index-procedure.

  • Freedom from hernia-related reinterventions [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Reinterventions at 12 months after index-procedure

  • Late complications [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

    Late complications at 12 months after index-procedure:

    • prolonged pain more than 8 weeks
    • local numbness
    • hernia recurrence
