Abstract The rates of re-recurrent hernias after initial abdominal wall hernia repair are high. To reduce this intolerable high recurrence rate, 31 patients were treated by polypropylene-mesh implantation and followed up for about 3 years. Two new hernias could be diagnosed and were treated without problems by repeated implantation of Prolene-mesh. About 50\% of patients complain of some pain at the edges of the implanted mesh--usually this makes only very few discomfort for the patients. The Polypropylene (Prolene) mesh implantation seems to reduce re-recurrence rates compared to published results of hernia repair without mesh implantation.
