The evidence for choice of surgical technique in ventral hernia treatment is poor. The outcomes have so far been associated with high recurrence rates and significant morbidity. Data from the Danish Ventral Hernia Database show large variations in the surgical approach. On the basis of a consensus meeting, agreement on a national strategy for ventral hernia surgery in Denmark is proposed in order to facilitate future interpretation of the outcomes.
