INTRODUCTION: .Incisional hernias are one of the most common complications of open abdominal surgeries, presents as herniation or protrusion occurring along a prior abdominal scar. This study was undertaken to study the incidence and various risk factors leading to incisional hernia AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To assess sexual predisposition, age. to assess obesity as contributing risk factor. RESULTS: The incidence is around 18.5 %. Patients in the age group of 30-50 years found to have highest incidence of Incisional hernia. Females outnumbered the males with the ratio of 6: 1 CONCLUSION: Incisional hernias incidence can be reduced by limiting the length of midline incisions, especially in the infra umbilical region. Laparoscopic mesh repair results in less post-operative complications provided drains are used.
