Another interesting paper that mentions “HerniaSurge” even though the group does not seem to exist anymore.

Also interesting in that they refer to their work as assisting in the update of the Guidelines, but note that the recurrence rates for hernia repair are still very high. The whole premise of laparoscopic mesh repair is that recurrence rates are lower. References 4-7 are all from 2018 – 2020.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if EHS or the “HerniaSurge” group have found themselves in a bind, where the review of new data shows that the 2018 Guidelines are seriously flawed. The delay and lack of communication is telling.

“The routine use of mesh in groin hernia surgery has engendered substantially decreased recurrence risk.1,2 However, current long-term reoperation rates for recurrence are still disappointing, in the range of 8% to 15%.3-7”
