Hernioplasty can be done by closing the abdominal wall with a horizontal mattress pattern using absorbable sutures. However, larger defects (hernial ring size > 3 cm) generally require the use of prosthetic materials that allow for a tension-free repair. In this study, 10 young female goats with umbilical hernias and hernial ring sizes ranging from 7-10 cm in width were treated using a double-layer polypropylene mesh. An ultrasonographic examination was performed to assess healing and connective tissue production.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50509||ISSN:||1300-0128||DOI:||10.3906/vet-1006-365||Source:||Turkish Journal of Veterinary and Animal Sciences[ISSN 1300-0128],v. 35, p. 131-135|
