Sammanfattning

Based on solid evidence, mesh prosthesis reinforcement has reduced the risk of recurrence after umbilical hernia repair1–4, but less is known about the risk of complications or chronic pain4,5. Patients’ claims after surgery may represent a surrogate for poor outcome6. This study examined mesh prosthesis-related complications leading to economic compensation after elective umbilical hernia repair. Before the present study, it was hypothesized that prosthesis-related complications and chronic pain after elective umbilical hernia repair were important claim reasons leading to economic compensation.
