Does age play a role? Would a younger patient be better suited for suture due to stronger tissues, or just the opposite since they will have to rely on the stitches for many decades?
How about how long one has had the hernia? Having a hernia for several years, even if it is only medium sized, does this weaken the tissue and raise risk of recurrence vs. someone who recently discovered the hernia and repaired it quickly?
