Brief Summary:

Retrospective analysis of patients undergoing laparoscopic incisional hernia repair.

Study group: Patients with incisional hernia post liver transplantation Control group: Patients with incisional hernia post any other laparotomy in the upper quadrant.

Primary study outcome parameter: Risk of hernia recurrence. Secondary study outcome parameters: - Hernia repair-related infection rate

- Postoperative morbidity Statistical analysis: Comparison of study versus control group, univariate and multivariate analysis, Chi² and Mann-Whitney-U tests. P-values <0.05 were considered significant.
