Abstract:
Seroma formation remains a common complication after an incisional hernia repair. The use of surgical drains is widespread, but evidence for their use and other adjuncts is limited. Our aim was to perform a systematic review of the literature on techniques used to reduce the incidence of post-operative seroma formation.
