Guidelines for treatment of umbilical and epigastric hernias from the European Hernia Society and Americas Hernia Society

Introduction

Umbilical and epigastric hernia repairs are frequently performed surgical procedures with an expected low complication rate. Nevertheless, the optimal method of repair with best short- and long-term outcomes remains debatable. These guidelines provide guidance for the treatment of umbilical and epigastric hernias.

The guidelines were published by the European and American Hernia SocietiesĀ in 2020.
