Abstract During eight years polypropylene mesh was used in fifty-three patients for the repair of difficult incisional hernias. There was no operative mortality, and the mesh has been uniformly well tolerated. To date, recurrences have been observed in six patients (11.3\%), a distinct improvement over the era before mesh was used. Greater attention to the details of mesh fixation may further lower the recurrence rate.
