      According to this site the ‘simple stiching ‘ procedure practiced for a hundred years had a recurrence of 10%….it seems quite OK to me!?

      It seems your article requires a login or a payment.

      @alephy
      The recurrence rate is dependent on multiple factors.
      A young healthy male has a low recurrence rate:

      But if you operate on an obese, smoker, on steroids the hernia will recur no matter what operation is done.

      I’m not in US, but it’s possible that it be freely available in some parts of the world. If you can post another link or an abstract (or send me a copy), that will help.
