In the article by Ulrich A. Dietz et al., entitled “The Treatment of Incisional Hernia” in issue 3 of Deutsches Ärzteblatt International (19 January 2018), items C and D in the legend of Figure 2 were switched. The correct legend to the figure should read “With retromuscular mesh repair of midline incisional hernia, it is crucial to ensure a mesh overlap extending underneath the xiphoid to prevent recurrence”. A) Xiphoid process; B) Posterior rectus sheath closed in the midline. Because of the midline xiphoid process insertion of the rectus sheath, a so called fatty triangle is created during the release of the posterior rectus sheath from the xiphoid. At the end of the mesh repair, this triangle is secured only by the synthetic mesh (C). With proper dissection, the mesh overlap underneath the xiphoid process extends several centimeters in cranial direction. D) Anterior rectus sheath. MWR
