Is it time to close the “defects” in hernia surgery?

Abstract

Hernia repair is one of the commonest operations a general surgeon performs yet a literature search on the topic in South Africa finds less than ten original articles and only a handful of case reports. In this edition of the SAJS, there are four publications on local hernia surgery which contribute significantly to the flimsy body of evidence available.
