The authors suggested a method for covering the subcutaneous fat and tested it in 115 operations for postoperative ventral hernias. The method is based on vertical arrangement of gauze napkins covering one another in turn by one third. All of the operated on patients had no inflammatory complications of the postoperative wound. The authors claim this method to be among the elements preventing postoperative inflammatory complications of wounds.
