INGUINAL HERNIA?

One of the most common surgical conditions which effects the general population, predominantly males

So what is Inguinal Hernia?

An inguinal hernia is a profusion of abdominal cavity contents through the inguinal canal which is located in the lower abdomen or the groin.

Both men and women have inguinal canals.

In men, the Testis usually descends into the scrotum just before birth. In women it harbors the round ligament of uterus.

Symptoms

  • Majority of inguinal hernia's are symptomless but noticeable by their appearance-bulges around the groin or pubic Area.
  • Some patients experience increase in size of swelling when exertion or standing
  • Pain in groin during Coughing/Exercising etc.
  • Dragging or Heavy sensation in the groin
  • Swelling/Pain/heaviness in the scrotum
  • Complications of Inguinal Hernia

    IRREDUCIBILITY

    It means that the contents of hernial sac get stuck at the neck resulting in increase in the size of swelling, severe pain, discomfort

    OBSTRUCTED INGUINAL HERNIA

    • This is one step ahead of IRREDUCIBILITY
    • The stuck contents of the sac, can result in obstruction of the intestines or sometimes cut off the Blood supply to the intestines which are struck in the inguinal sac (Strangulation)
    • An Irreducible/Obstructed/Strangulated hernia is a SURGICAL EMERGENCY
    • DIAGNOSIS

      • Usually a good clinical examination is a good enough to diagnose Hernia
      • USG ABDOMEN AND HERNIA
      • CT SCAN OF ABDOMEN in certain situations will help in further diagnosis.
      • TREATMENT

        • We need to understand that treatment of the predisposing factors is as equally important as treating Hernia itself
        • Constipation should be treated correctly before planning Surgery. Treatment of constipation is long term and so it should be correctly monitored after surgery also
        • Factors which predispose to chronic cough (Asthma, Bronchitis, Allergic Cough, TB, etc.)Should be adequately controlled
        • Patients should be treated for Prostate problems, urinary structure etc.
        • A good counselling is needed for patient regarding the weight loss, regular diet and exercise and to give up smoking
        • Treatment of Inguinal Hernia is essentially surgical. No medical/Injections can cure Hernia
        • Principles of Surgery are

          • Push the contents inside the abdomen
          • Closure of the abdominal wall to close the defect
          • Use of a Mesh(Synthetic Material) to reinforce the repair
          • This can be done effectively through a conventional surgery or LAPROSCOPICALLY
          • The post operation course is usually uneventful
          • Patients are discharged within 24-48hrs after operation, in either form of surgeries. They are usually able to resume work in 3-4 days
          • Don't Neglect your health, don’t delay, Consult your Family doctor or nearest hospital or MANKINDD HOSPITAL
