Although there are many interesting aspects to this presentation of abdominal wall problems, I find the review of prosthetic material and its use to be most unique. The synthetic meshes available today may well revolutionize our various approaches for repair of hernial defects. Considerable experience has evolved in the use of these prosthetic materials, particularly in the United Kingdom and Eu rope. I have been a proponent of prosthetic mesh for the cure of recurrent groin hernia during the past decade. According to the re sults reported in this book, the use of a prosthetic material in select ed patients needing primary hernia repair seems indicated. I would be remiss if the organization GREPA were not highlighted.These figures demonstrate that the risk of infection inherent in prosthetic repair ranges from 0.5% to 3.7% according to the type of surgical approach.
