Abstract

Incisional hernia is a frequent complication of midline laparotomy and enterostomal creation and is associated with high morbidity, decreased quality of life, and high costs. The International Symposium on Incisional Hernia Prevention was held October 19–20, 2017, at the InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco, CA, hosted by the Department of Surgery, University of California, San Francisco. One hundred and three attendees included general and plastic surgeons from 9 countries, including principal participants for several of the seminal studies in the field. Over the course of the 2-day meeting, there were 38 oral presentations, 3 keynote lectures, and 2 panel discussions. The Symposium was a combination of new information but also a comprehensive review of the existing data so as to assess the current state of the field and to set the stage for future research. Further, the Symposium sought to increase awareness and thus emphasize the importance of preventing the formation of incisional and enterostomal hernias.
