Overview

The authors refer results of surgical treatment of incarcerated ventral hernias in patients with morbid obesity. In the 3rd Department of Surgery of the Comenius University Medical Faculty in Bratislava, 4 obese patients (BMI over 40) were operated for incarcerated ventral hernias in 2007. Based on a follow up analysis, the authors recommend a proactive approach to elective surgical therapy.

Key words:
incarcerated hernia – obesity and hernias – hernia permagna
