Difficult hernia repair in the elderly. A particular case
Campanelli G., Senni-Buratti M., Ruca A., Nicolosi F. M., Contessini-Avesani E.
A particular clinical case personally observed is described. On the basis of this case it is evaluated if it can be correct to implant a mesh in potentially contaminated areas, if preperitoneal repair is the best approach in recurrent or difficult hernia repair and if there are specific contraindications in operating elderly patients.
