Answer

Recurrence, bleeding, infection, and persisting pain are potential complications for the other types of abdominal wall hernia. The rate of recurrence for incisional hernias may be as high as 30%. The addition of mesh to most abdominal wall hernia repairs is decreasing the incidence of recurrence.
