Repair of Hernias


A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or fascia. The most common types of hernia are inguinal (inner groin), incisional (resulting from an incision), femoral (outer groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal (upper stomach).

Causes of hernia:

  • Any increase of the intra-abdominal pressure by chronic cough constipation
  • Lifting heavy weights
  • Multiple pregnancies without spacing

Symptoms include:

  • Starts with painless swelling and reduces on lying down or resting
  • Progresses to painless irreducible swelling containing omen-tum
  • Could include part of the bowel leading to persistent vomiting and urgent surgical intervention

The repair of hernia includes closure of the defect and reinforcing the repair either by natural tissue or by mesh.
