The field of abdominal wall hernia surgery continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Surgeons dealing with abdominal wall hernias must constantly stay abreast as new biomaterials and surgical techniques evolve. Increasing knowledge related to hernia formation and factors affecting outcomes will help surgeons prevent hernias and individualize hernia repair techniques and biomaterials based on specific clinical situations and patient characteristics. This review outlines some new advances in abdominal wall hernia management focusing on hernia prevention, preoperative strategies to improve outcomes, available biomaterials and mesh products used in hernia repair, new surgical techniques, and improving ways to evaluate outcomes and perform continuous quality improvement in hernia repair.
