Pain and Quality of Life After Retromuscular Ventral Hernia Repair (RECOVER)


Brief description of study

The study aims to explore the difference in outcomes relating to pain and quality of life after open, laparoscopic, and robotic-assisted retromuscular ventral hernia repair.

Detailed Study Description

This is a prospective, multicenter, observational study assessing outcomes relating to pain and quality of life for subjects undergoing open, laparoscopic, or robotic-assisted retromuscular ventral hernia repair. The study will focus on short-term post-operative outcomes through 3 months. The study will also collect recurrence data through 1 year. During the post-operative period through 3 months, pain medication intake, subject reported pain (on post-operative day 7, 14, 21, 28, and 3 months) and quality of life (on day 28, 3 months, and 1 year) and incidence of intra-operative and post-operative adverse events related to the ventral hernia repair will be collected.
