Selecting the most appropriate surgical approach may requires multidimensional analysis, prioritizing factors spanning from the clinical dimension to the economic one. Multicriteria decision analysis may support this decisional process.

Abstract

Selecting the most appropriate surgical approach may requires multidimensional analysis, prioritizing factors spanning from the clinical dimension to the economic one. Multicriteria decision analysis may support this decisional process. This study applied the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to prioritize factors affecting the decision of whether to intervene with minimally invasive surgery or open surgery for hernia repairs. This paper present the preliminary results from the piloting of this study.
