Hernias and surgery of the abdominal wall
The result of a European-American cooperation, whose joint efforts have dramatically reduced the rate of recurrent groin hernia, burst abdomen and incisional hernia in patients. The contributors to this new edition are among the most renowned specialists in the field and here they present personal accounts of the once controversial techniques they have now perfected. New sections have been added to include such revolutionary techniques as prosthetic mesh and laparoscopic surgery.
