International Hernia Mesh Registry
A Two-Year Follow-up, Post-Implantation, Multi-center, International Hernia Mesh Registry

To determine patient reported long-term outcomes, and post-implantation clinical characteristics related to the use of mesh products in 3,500 patients minimum.

To help identify best practices leading to lower recurrence rates and decreases in chronic pain associated with the hernia repair procedure.
