Manuscript Submission:

During your original online abstract submission, you agreed to submit a full manuscript within 60 days after the conclusion of the meeting to Hernia, The World Journal of Hernia and Abdominal Wall Surgery. Therefore, as an accepted abstract for oral presentation, we require that you submit a full manuscript of this abstract for consideration of publication no later then May 31, 2018. You also have the option to submit your manuscript on-site at the meeting in Miami. Authors can expect a first decision on their manuscript within 30 days of submission. As an additional incentive, the first authors of the first 5 accepted papers will receive a free copy of a recent Hernia book published by Springer.
