Secondary endpointswere operative time, length of hospital stay and postoperative complicationsof the two methods.

Results: A total of 80 patients were allocated in two groups, group A (n=40)underwent incisional hernia repair by sublay method and the remaining inGroup B, (n=40) by onlay method. The frequency of wound infection wasfound significantly higher in the Sublay method of mesh placement (p=0.019).The frequency of seroma formation was significantly higher in the onlay methodof mesh placement(p=0.076).
