Prophylaxis of incisional hernia - Are they preventable? Abstract. Following abdominal surgery, incisional hernias are common. Weight reduction and smoking cessation prior to elective surgery positively influence relevant risk factors. Laparoscopic operation technique prevents incisional hernia formation. Patients at increased risk for incisional hernia undergoing open abdominal surgery should be evaluated for prophylactic implantation of a non-absorbable mesh.
