Abstract

The utilization of beta-D: -glucan-coated mesh did not involve more recurrence and was accompanied by a significant decrease in chronic pain at 2 years, independent of the technique. After 2 years, the results of hernia repair show that the choice of prosthesis was more determinant than choice of technique.
