INTRODUCTION: Incisional hernia is a source of morbidity and requires high health care costs. Despite significant advances in many areas of surgery, correction of incisional hernias continues to be problematic. This study was conducted with the purpose to compare outcomes in incisional hernia patients operated with prolene mesh hernioplasty and anatomical repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Totally 50 patients diagnosed with incisional hernia were allocated to either a proline mesh group (n = 25) or anatomical repair group (n = 25) using simple random sampling method. RESULTS: On comparison of recurrence after mesh repair and anatomical repair, it was found that there was significant difference (p = 0.016) between two groups on performing chisquared test. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, in patients with incisional hernias, prolene mesh is a better option than anatomical repair with regard to the recurrence of hernia.
