Abstract Even with the routine use of mesh, repairing an incisional hernia is a challenge. Increasing evidence of impaired wound healing in these patients supports routine use of an open prefascial, retromuscular mesh repair. Basic pathophysiologic principles dictate that for a successful long-term outcome and prevention of recurrence a wide overlap underneath healthy tissue is required. The extent of this overlap should be 5 cm in all directions: surrounding the wound closure, subxiphoidal underneath the ribs, below the arcuate line, and retropubic.
