Hernias can occur commonly after major abdominal surgery. Following abdominal surgery such as liver resections, pancreatic resections, and resection of intestines patients may be protein malnourished and have difficulty healing wounds. Patients with large hernias often dislike the abdominal bulge and experience a feelin of fullness in their lower abdomen. Restoring the abdominal wall musculature back to its normal position and reinforcing or providing a load sharing principle allows the patient to have a functional abdominal wall.
