Abstract

A hernia is defined as the protrusion of viscera from the abdominal cavity through a natural, preformed, anatomical route, while an incisional hernia indicates the protrusion of viscera from the abdominal cavity through a route formed after trauma induced by cutting (surgical incision, laparascopic trocar puncture wounds[1], stab wounds).
