This webinar was recorded on July 24, 2020. This webinar is designed to examine the impact of gender in the management of hernia repair. Experts will discuss post-operative outcomes and discuss the biologic variable in gender in managing hernia repair. Hernia symptoms in both men and women are similar; however, certain types of hernia are more predominant depending on gender. While femoral hernias are more common in women, men are more susceptible to inguinal hernias. Our goal is to help participants understand the data and determine a recommendation of hernia repair and the use of mesh in women of childbearing age.
This activity is designed for all surgeons involved in abdominal wall reconstruction, including general, bariatric, plastic and trauma surgeons.
