Experimental: modified "open mesh technique"
We performed an "open" intraperitoneal mesh technique in all patients: we placed surgical mesh of appropriate size intraperitoneally with transfascial fixation and drainage.
Procedure: modified "open mesh technique"
We positioned mesh intraperitoneally so it can provide adequate mechanical support to the weakened abdominal wall. We also preserved hernia sack to conceal the mesh.
- number/frequency of early postoperative complications (wound infections, seroma, hematoma) [ Time Frame: four weeks after the surgery ]
- postoperative hernia recurrence [ Time Frame: up to 36 months after the surgery ]
