Hernia Surgery

Posted On 2021-04-08 09:43:43

Worldwide, more than 20 million patients undergo groin hernia repair annually. Thus, eventfree outcome is important to avoid extensive sick leave and to diminish chronic pain after surgery. Denmark and Sweden probably have some of the strongest registry-based research traditions in the world with hundreds of different clinical databases that can be linked to other national registries where data can be traced back to individuals. We launch a theme series on hernia surgery focusing on some of the current research activity in Denmark and Sweden. This series do not cover all the different areas of ongoing research but will focus on some of the activity including the influence of the two hernia registries.
