Arm Intervention/treatment
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.
