This national online survey was sent to members of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons in order to assess perspectives on risk factors and prevention for a rare surgical complication. Surgeons were asked to describe the nature of their practice, the number of trocar site hernias (TSH) developed by their patients, and the circumstances of the TSH development. Results were used to describe TSH outcomes and trends in surgical practice based on surgical volume, academic versus private practice, and preferred method of facial closure.
