Summary Recurrence is a significant public health problem. So, this fourth Suvretta meeting, held in February 2006 is intended to concentrate on this problem. Technical nuances of the various operations have been discussed to pursue consensus concerning the best techniques. Methods were explored to improve surgeons' education and look into the multifactorial etiologies to understand the biology of hernia recurrence better
