An abdominal hernia with an external bulge in the GROIN region. It can be classified by the location of herniation. Indirect inguinal hernias occur through the internal inguinal ring. Direct inguinal hernias occur through defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL (transversalis fascia) in Hesselbach's triangle. The former type is commonly seen in children and young adults; the latter in adults.
Protrusion of tissue, structure, or part of an organ through the bone, muscular tissue, or the membrane by which it is normally contained. Hernia may involve tissues such as the ABDOMINAL WALL or the respiratory DIAPHRAGM. Hernias may be internal, external, congenital, or acquired.
Protrusion of abdominal structures into the THORAX as a result of congenital or traumatic defects in the respiratory DIAPHRAGM.

Transmesenteric hernia after laparoscopic-assisted sigmoid colectomy. (1/217)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopic-assisted surgery has been applied for a variety of colonic surgery. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate a possible and avoidable complication of laparoscopic colonic surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 47-year-old woman underwent gasless laparoscopic-assisted sigmoid colectomy. On the 20th postoperative day, she developed bowel obstruction. Decompression with a long tube failed to resolve the bowel obstruction. Open laparotomy was performed. Abdominal exploration revealed a loop of the small bowel incarcerated in the mesenteric defect caused by the previous operation. Adhesiolysis was performed, and the postoperative course was uneventful. DISCUSSION: Despite technical difficulty, complete closure of the mesentery after bowel resection is strongly recommended for prevention of transmesenteric incarcerated hernia after laparoscopic surgery.  (+info)

Risk factors for testicular cancer: a case-control study in twins. (2/217)

Early life and anthropometric risk factors for testicular cancer were examined in a case-control study in England and Wales in which affected male twins were compared with their unaffected male co-twins. Questionnaire data was obtained for 60 twin pairs. Significantly raised risk of testicular cancer occurred in twins who had longer arms and legs than their co-twin. There was a significant excess of testicular cancer reported in non-twin brothers, as well as in twin brothers, of cases. Risk was also significantly raised in relation to cryptorchidism. The results on limb length suggest that factors, perhaps nutritional, affecting growth before puberty, may be causes of testicular cancer. The results on risk in brothers add to evidence of a large genetic component in aetiology of the tumour. The risk associated with cryptorchidism in the twins accords with the hypothesis that cryptorchidism is causally associated with testicular cancer because it is a cause of the malignancy, rather than because the same maternal factors experienced in utero cause both conditions.  (+info)

Idiopathic spinal cord herniation: value of MR phase-contrast imaging. (3/217)

We report two patients with an idiopathic transdural spinal cord herniation at the thoracic level. Phase-contrast MR imaging was helpful in showing an absence of CSF flow ventral to the herniated cord and a normal CSF flow pattern dorsal to the cord, which excluded a compressive posterior arachnoid cyst.  (+info)

A 73-year-old female presented with a large empty sella with herniation of an elongated third ventricle concomitant with herniation of the surrounding subarachnoid space into the sella, manifesting as visual impairment and amenorrhea without galactorrhea. Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography cisternography clearly showed the large empty sella, without evidence of either hydrocephalus or benign intracranial hypertension, which is extremely rare.  (+info)

Comparison between the transabdominal and retroperitoneal approaches for aortic reconstruction in patients at high risk. (5/217)

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the transabdominal approach with the retroperitoneal approach for elective aortic reconstruction in the patient who is at high risk. METHODS: From January 1992 through January 1997, 148 patients underwent aortic operations: 92 of the patients were classified as American Society of Anesthesia (ASA) class IV. Forty-four operations on the patients of ASA class IV were performed with the transabdominal approach (25 for abdominal aortic aneurysms and 19 for aortoiliac occlusive disease), and 48 operations were performed with the retroperitoneal approach (27 for abdominal aortic aneurysms and 21 for aortoiliac occlusive disease). There were no significant differences between the groups for comorbid risk factors or perioperative care. RESULTS: Among the patients of ASA class IV, eight (8.7%) died after operation (retroperitoneal, 3 [6.26%]; transabdominal, 5 [11.3%]; P =.5). There was no difference between groups in the number of pulmonary complications (retroperitoneal, 23 [47.9%]; transabdominal, 19 [43.2%]; P =.7) or in the development of incisional hernias (retroperitoneal, 6 [12.5%]; transabdominal, 5 [11.3%]; P =.5). The retroperitoneal approach was associated with a significant reduction in cardiac complications (retroperitoneal, 6 [12.5%]; transabdominal, 10 [22.7%]; P =.004) and in gastrointestinal complications (retroperitoneal, 5 [8.3%]; transabdominal, 15 [34.1%]). Operative time was significantly longer in the retroperitoneal group (retroperitoneal, 3.35 hours; transabdominal, 2.98 hours; P =.006), as was blood loss (retroperitoneal, 803 mL; transabdominal, 647 mL; P =.012). The patients in the retroperitoneal group required less intravenous narcotics (retroperitoneal, 36.6 +/- 21 mg; transabdominal, 49.5 +/- 28.5 mg; P =.004) and less epidural analgesics (retroperitoneal, 39.5 +/- 6.4 mg; transabdominal, 56.6 +/- 9.5 mg; P =.004). Hospital length of stay (retroperitoneal, 7.2 +/- 1.6 days; transabdominal, 12.8 +/- 2.3 days; P =.024) and hospital charges (retroperitoneal, $35,587 +/- $980; transabdominal, $54,832 +/- $1105; P =.04) were significantly lower in the retroperitoneal group. The survival rates at the 40-month follow-up period were similar between the groups (retroperitoneal, 81.3%; transabdominal, 78.7%; P =.53). CONCLUSION: In this subset of patients who were at high risk for aortic reconstruction, the postoperative complications were common. However, the number of complications was significantly lower in the retroperitoneal group. Aortic reconstruction in patients of ASA class IV appears to be more safely and economically performed with the retroperitoneal approach.  (+info)

Six-fold suture:wound length ratio for abdominal closure. (6/217)

Midline laparotomy incision is generally closed as a continuous single layer with monofilament suture. To achieve safe abdominal closure, it is advised to have a suture:wound length (SL:WL) ratio of more than 4:1. The importance of a high SL:WL ratio led us to standardise a safe abdominal closure technique. We calculated the subsequent SL:WL ratio and support our finding with a mathematical model. Between March 1996 and February 1997, 100 consecutive patients undergoing elective or emergency laparotomy through a midline incision were entered into this prospective study. The wounds were closed with a single layer continuous suture to approximate the abdominal muscles. Suture and wound lengths were recorded. Patients were followed for one year. Five patients developed incisional hernia at 12 months postoperatively. There was no burst abdomen. The mean SL:WL ratio: was 6.2:1. A mathematical model confirms that a SL:WL ratio of 6:1 should be achieved with this suture technique. We recommend an optimal SL:WL ratio: greater than or equivalent to 6:1 to achieve safe closure of midline laparotomy incision.  (+info)

Midgut malrotation in adulthood. (8/217)

A 29-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a history of recurrent right upper quadrant abdominal pain and vomiting. These symptoms appeared intermittently for 7 years. Various examinations revealed a diagnosis of midgut malrotation. Laparotomy was performed and revealed reverse rotation of the duodenum with paraduodenal hernia and a normal rotating colon. This case suggests that recurrent abdominal complaints in an adult should arouse suspicion of midgut malrotation.  (+info)

N2 - Introduction: Internal hernias are a rare cause of bowel obstruction, constituting 0.2-0.9 % of all cases with paraduodenal hernias (PDH) being the most common accounting for 50 % of all internal hernias with 75 % of those being left-sided [1, 2]. They are due to small bowel herniating into a peritoneum-lined sac at the fourth portion of the duodenum as the result of abnormal midgut rotation during embryonic development. Patients may present with symptoms of small bowel obstruction, though the majority are found incidentally [3]. Diagnosis is aided with computed tomography (CT) with findings of encapsulated clustering of small bowel loops in the left upper quadrant, bowel between the stomach and pancreas, crowding of mesenteric vessels, and displacement of the inferior mesenteric vein [4]. Methods: A 34-year-old male presented ...
RPH is a type of internal hernia and is frequently associated with intestinal malrotation. Although RPH is relatively rare compared with left paraduodenal hernia, it causes high mortality as high as 50%. RPH occurs in the fossa of Waldeyer, which is typically located inferior to the third portion of the duodenum and behind the small bowel mesenteric root. During the 6th-10th week of embryonic period, midgut normally rotates 270° counterclockwise manner. Then, the prearterial jejunum lies in the left upper quadrant and the postarterial jejunum is located in the right lower quadrant. The fossa of Waldeyer is thought to result from incomplete rotation of the prearterial jejunum, and subsequent failure of fusion between the mesentery and duodenal third portion [1].. CT is the standard of reference for the diagnosis of internal hernia and its complications. In cases of internal hernia into a fossa in the retroperitoneum, the bowel loop usually appears as a pseudo-encapsulated sac-like structure on ...
We report a case of right paraduodenal hernia in an adult patient and its emergency diagnosis and management in an acute clinical presentation. A twenty-eight-year-old male patient was admitted in our outside hospitals emergency room after 12 hours of evolution of diffuse abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. He referred a similar episode several months ago that ceased spontaneously. An abdominal CT scan with intravenous contrast demonstrated an encapsulated cluster of small bowel loops occupying mainly the right upper quadrant, lateral to the duodenum, suspicious for an internal hernia in the context of an intestinal malrotation. The patient underwent a laparotomy, which revealed a large sac containing dilated small bowel loops as shown by radiologic studies. The patient did well in postoperatory and was discharged home on the fourth day after the surgery. In a year follow up the patient remained asymptomatic.

If your pet is in a stable condition, perineal hernia surgery is usually recommended to repair the damage. Most cases require repair of the rupture, sometimes combined with castration. If there was an underlying cause of the hernia, additional treatment prior to or alongside the surgery will be needed.. Some ruptures are repaired using muscles from the pelvic diaphragm, although many require movement of additional muscle into the area to close the opening. Following your pets operation, their rectum is will be very sensitive, and laxatives or stool softeners may be prescribed to offer them comfort when defecating. They may also be placed on a broad-spectrum antibiotic to reduce the risk of infection.. ...
Is Lumbar Hernia Healed With Physical Therapy? Physiotherapy for Lumbar Hernia, The most common treatment method in the treatment of herniated
METHODS: A retrospective review of 1,000 retrocolic Lap-RYGB was performed to identify those who developed postoperative internal hernias. Clinical symptoms, radiologic characteristics, and operative outcomes were analyzed to determine clinical and radiologic diagnostic accuracy (including computed tomography [CT] scan and upper gastrointestinal imaging). Subsequent independent review was performed to match operative intervention with radiologic imaging and interpretation. Operative outcomes, including the hernia closure technique, hospital length of stay, and mortality were obtained. RESULTS: Of 1,000 Lap-RYGB procedures, 45 internal hernias were identified (4.5%) in 43 patients...The most common clinical symptoms included intermittent, postprandial abdominal pain, and/or nausea vomiting (86%), although 20% had no abdominal tenderness. Initial radiologic imaging studies were diagnostic in 64%, although subsequent review of all imaging studies showed diagnostic abnormalities in 97%...The mean ...
Many occur without pain; only a bulge is noted. The bulge represents internal organs (intestine, omentum or bladder) which have protruded through the opening in the abdominal wall. Most hernias protrude when the person stands or sits. Typically, a bulging hernia flattens (reduces) when the person lies down; it then protrudes again when he/she is upright. When a hernia cannot be reduced, it is called irreducible or incarcerated. When an internal organ of an incarcerated hernia cannot be reduced, its blood supply can be compromised causing it to become strangulated. This extremely serious consequence is usually preceded by feeling a tender lump that will not reduce. Strangulation is a critical surgical emergency. If you think your hernia is strangulated, dont delay. Get medical help immediately! Click here to learn more about hernia causes.. ...

Conservative management consisting of a diet high in fiber and moisture content, stool softeners and intermittent evacuation of feces from the dilated/deviated rectum, may be tried but is not successful long-term. Surgical repair of the hernia is the treatment of choice. A number of herniorrhaphy techniques exist including traditional apposition of pelvic diaphragm structures, internal obturator muscle transposition, superficial gluteal muscle transposition, and the use of prosthetic or biomaterial implants such as polypropylene mesh or Porcine Small-Intestinal Submucosa. Currently internal obturator muscle transposition is the technique of choice of most surgeons in most cases. Prior to surgery, CBC, chemistry panel and urinalysis should be performed to assess the patients anesthetic status and look for concurrent illnesses. If the urinary bladder is involved, azotemia and metabolic changes may be noted. Urine culture should be considered in cases with concurrent cystitis. Enemas are not ...

Small bowel prolapse, also called enterocele (EN-tur-o-seel), occurs when the small intestine (small bowel) descends into the lower pelvic cavity and pushes at the top part of the vagina, creating a bulge. The word prolapse means to slip or fall out of place.

A hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity bulge out of the area where they are normally contained. These contents, usually portions of intestine or abdominal fatty tissue, are enclosed in the thin membrane that naturally lines the inside of the cavity. Hernias by themselves may be asymptomatic (produce no symptoms) or cause slight to severe pain. Nearly all have a potential risk of having their blood supply cut off (becoming strangulated). When the content of the hernia bulges out, the opening it bulges out through can apply enough pressure that blood vessels in the hernia are constricted and therefore the blood supply is cut off. If the blood supply is cut off at the hernia opening in the abdominal wall, it becomes a medical and surgical emergency as the tissue needs oxygen which is transported by the blood supply. ...

A hernia occurs when an internal body part protrudes through a weakened area of surrounding muscle or tissue that would usually be able to contain it. Hernia are very common and estimates suggests that around one in ten of us develops a hernia at some point in their lifetime.
Hernia is the protrusion of intestinal content through a natural or a post-surgery defect of the abdominal wall (external hernia), or through an internal weakness zone (internal hernia).
Ureteral herniation is a rare anatomic entity. In 1975, Pollack et al. reported that there had been 120 reports of ureteral hernias at the time of their case series publication [9]. While the exact case number is unknown, recent publications have documented fewer than 200 cases [10, 11]. These herniations, have been described in several anatomic regions including inguinal, femoral, sciatic, obturator, and thoracic regions. Out of these listed, inguinal ureteral hernias are the most common, occurring approximately 42-64% of the time, and have the greatest risk of inadvertent injury due to the herniorrhaphies associated with that area [9, 12]. Conversely, literature review revealed fewer than 10 documented thoracic ureteral herniation cases and none were from sequelae to iatrogenic injuries. This subset likely represents the rarest form of ureteral herniations.. Thoracic ureteral hernias were first documented by Swithinbank in 1958 [3]. This case involved a right-sided diaphragmatic ureteral ...
Ultimately, all hernias are caused by a combination of pressure and the opening or weakness of muscles or fascia: the pressure pushes the organ or tissue through an opening or weak point. Sometimes the muscle weakness is present at birth, often occurs later in life. Poor diet, smoking, excessive effort, and all can weaken muscles and make a hernia more likely. Anything that causes an increase in abdominal pressure can cause a hernia, including obesity, heavy lifting, constipation or diarrhea, or persistent coughing or sneezing ...
A hernia occurs when part of an internal organ bulges through a weak area of muscle. Hernias are common. They can affect men, women and children. A combination of muscle weakness and straining, such as with heavy lifting, might contribute. Some people are born with weak abdominal muscles and may be more likely to get a hernia.

A hernia usually does not go away without surgery. There are non-surgical approaches, including wearing a corset, binder, or truss, which exert gentle pressure on a hernia and keep it in place. Complications to conservative or non-surgical management (which should strictly be done under a doctors supervision) include bowel obstruction and strangulation.
A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or part of an organ through the wall of the cavity that normally contains it. A hernia occurs when there is a weakness or tear in your abdominal wall as a result of aging, injury, a previous surgical incision, or a condition present at birth.

Perineal hernia is a hernia involving the perineum (pelvic floor). The hernia may contain fluid, fat, any part of the intestine, the rectum, or the bladder. It is known to occur in humans, dogs, and other mammals, and often appears as a sudden swelling to one side (sometimes both sides) of the anus. A common cause of perineal hernia is surgery involving the perineum. Perineal hernia can be caused also by excessive straining to defecate (tenesmus). Other causes include prostate or urinary disease, constipation, anal sac disease (in dogs), and diarrhea[citation needed]. Atrophy of the levator ani muscle and disease of the pudendal nerve may also contribute to a perineal hernia. In humans, a major cause of perineal hernia is perineal surgery without adequate reconstruction. In some cases, particularly surgeries to remove the coccyx and distal sacrum, adequate reconstruction is very difficult to achieve. The posterior perineum is a preferred point of access for surgery in the pelvic cavity, ...

INTRODUCTION: Internal herniation is a potential complication following laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). Previous studies have shown that closure of mesenteric defects after LRYGB may reduce the incidence of internal herniation. However, controversy remains as to whether mesenteric defect closure is necessary to decrease the incidence of internal hernias after LRYGB. This study aims to determine if jejeunal mesenteric defect closure reduces incidence of internal hernias and other complications in patients undergoing LRYGB.. METHODS: 105 patients undergoing laparoscopic antecolic RYGB were randomized into two groups: closed mesenteric defect (n = 50) or open mesenteric defect (n = 55). Complication rates were obtained from the medical record. Patients were followed up to 3 years post-operatively. Patients also completed the gastrointestinal quality of life index (GI QoL) pre-operatively and 12 months post-operatively. Outcome measures included: incidence of internal hernias, ...
INTRODUCTION: Lumbar hernias are rare defects of the posterolateral abdominal wall. Surgical repair of lumbar hernias is challenging because they are bounded inferiorly by the iliac bone, which makes adequate mesh fixation difficult. We demonstrate a method of a laparoscopic lumbar hernia repair utilizing bone anchor fixation at the inferior border.. METHODS: The patient is a 37-year old male with a history of motor vehicle collision who presented with a large left lumbar hernia and nonspecific abdominal pain. The patient had a Petit-type hernia, bordered by the external oblique muscle, the latissimus dorsi and the iliac crest. We opted to perform a laparoscopic mesh repair. Two Mitek GII QuickAnchor sutures were placed in the anterior superior iliac crest to provide inferior fixation of the mesh, with sufficient overlap of the mesh to prevent recurrence. The remainder of the mesh is fixed with standard laparoscopic tacks and transfascial sutures.. RESULTS: The patient did well postoperatively ...
The spinal cord is surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid (spinal fluid) throughout its course in the spinal canal. The spinal fluid serves as a buffer of fluid that surrounds the spinal cord providing protection and insulation from movements and trauma to the body. The spinal fluid is kept in place by two thin membranes- the arachnoid and dura. The arachnoid is a very thin see through membrane that is suspended in the spinal fluid while the dura is a slightly thicker and stronger membrane that surrounds the spinal fluid space.. A ventral spinal cord herniation may occur if a breach or weakness of the dura occurs. Spinal fluid can leak through this opening causing headaches as part of a condition called spontaneous intracranial hypotension. In rare circumstances, the spinal cord may be pushed forward and protrude through the breach in the dura to produce a ventral spinal cord herniation. This condition usually occurs in the thoracic spine and can cause numbness and weakness in the legs with walking ...

A hernia is a painful protrusion in your abdominal wall. A hernia occurs when an organ protrudes through a tear or weak point in your abdominal wall. The protrusion is called a hernia. If you think you might suffer from a hernia, then you need to examine some of the hernia symptoms.. A hernia can occur in any person of any age, but there are people more susceptible to hernias. This includes those with a family history of hernias. If you have a chronic cough or chronic constipation or even an enlarged prostate, you are susceptible to a hernia. If you are doing anything that puts a strain on your abdomen area, you are susceptible to developing a hernia. If you do a large amount of bending, lifting or straining, you can develop or increase the size of an existing hernia. This is the traditional cause of hernias and hernia symptoms.. You should examine the hernia symptoms if you have any of the risk factors or if you do a lot of heavy lifting. One of the most tell tale signs of a hernia is a tender ...

How can I tell if its a hernia?. Hernias are often discovered by people when they notice a bulge or swelling in their groin, abdomen, scrotum or thigh. A doctor can confirm the presence of a hernia during a physical examination. Smaller hernias may not require treatment except to be watched. Hernias that are getting larger or causing pain could require surgery, which is the only treatment that can permanently fix a hernia.. How do I treat my hernia? The kind of surgery necessary to repair a hernia will depend on the type, size and location of the hernia. Options include standard surgery, which involves making an incision over the hernia site and closing the hole with sutures, or a combination of sutures and a plastic mesh. The hernia also can be repaired laparoscopically using a tiny camera and special surgical instruments that are inserted through small incisions.. Most hernia surgeries are performed on an outpatient, non-emergency basis, David Ritter, MD, general surgeon on staff at Lake ...
Hernia was founded in 1997 with the purpose of promoting clinical studies and basic research as they apply to groin hernias, internal hernias, the abdominal wall (anterior and postero-lateral aspects), the diaphragm and the perineum. Hernia is the official organ of the European Hernia Society (GREPA), established in 1979, of the American Hernia Society (AHS) established in 1997 and of the Asia Pacific Hernia Society (APHS) established in 2004. These associations have common objectives: the advancement of abdominal wall and hernia surgery in all aspects, the study of anatomical, physiological, pathological and therapeutic issues concerning the abdominal wall and hernias, the creation of associated groups which will promote research and teaching in this field, the development of interdisciplinary relations. Hernia is a journal written by surgeons who have made abdominal wall surgery their special field of interest.. ...

Note from the Coach:. Women are particularly vulnerable to all sorts of hernias due to pregnancy. Contrary to common understanding women now sustain hernias at a rate that rivals male hernias. Not only do pregnant women get inguinal hernias, but also femoral, umbilical, epigastric, and incisional hernias, as well as diastasis recti, a less serious condition.. The real point here is that various supports are now made which meet the extraordinary needs of what is really a very stressful 9 month period of pregnancy. Those stresses come from many different directions so that if a woman is not fit, she becomes quite susceptible to the various hernias listed above.. The good news here is that a lot of thought is being given to how to best support the typical areas of weakness and vulnerability. Even though the female anatomy is a little different than the males, the etiology of hernia formation is quite similar. The true causation of female hernias is only magnified because of the inordinate ...
Hernia This term is derived from the Greek ipsos, a hanch. In its general and unlimited sense, Hernia may be defined to be a protrusion of any viscera out of its natural boundary. These may be a protrusion of the brain, called hernia coreber; there may also be a protrusion of some of the thoraces viscera any of the abdominal viscera may protrude; (and this is what is most commonly meant by the term Hernia) deriving its name from its situation and contained parts. Thus there is hernia Ischiatia a rupture at the Ischialic notch hernia Princalis when the protrusion takes place between the bladder and rectum hernia Phrenica, a protrusion through the diaphragm. There is another variety called hernia congenital because the patient is born with it. There is inguinal, feneral and unbilibal hernia; in these cases the rupture is either rat the groin; down the thigh under Pauparts ligament or at the umbilicus. Gastiocele is a hernia of the stomach.

Discussion. The diaphragm develops at weeks 4-12 in embryogenesis and consists of four parts, namely the pleuroperitoneal folds, the transverse septum, the oesophageal mesentery and the muscular body wall. A posterior (Bochdalek) hernia represents a developmental defect in the pleuroperitoneal folds or failure of fusion between the pleuroperitoneal folds and the transverse septum.1 It was first described by Victor Alexander Bochdalek in 1867 and is the most common type of congenital diaphragmatic hernia.2 Left-sided Bochdalek hernias are more common than right-sided Bochdalek hernias, although patients may also present with bilateral Bochdalek hernias (which are very rare).3. Bochdalek hernias are usually detected in the neonatal period as the hernia causes compression of the lung parenchyma, which may cause respiratory distress and cyanosis.4 Bochdalek hernias were found to be asymptomatic in 14% of patients (usually in females with right-sided hernias) in a review conducted by Brown et al.3 ...
The formal definition of a hernia is a protrusion of an internal organ through a wall of the cavity (as of the abdomen) in which it is normally enclosed. That being said, actually UNDERSTANDING what a hernia is can be one of the most important aspects of having a hernia. By learning what a hernia is, patients can better decide on whether to have their hernia treated, it can assist them in choosing the best method and the best specialist for their hernia surgery, and can help in developing a clear understanding of recovery after hernia repair. However, learning what a hernia is can be difficult. We hope that the pictures, descriptions, and video below will help walk you through developing a basic understanding of what the term HERNIA describes ...
A hernia develops when tissue bulges through a weak spot in the wall of your belly. The groin area and the navel are common areas for a hernia. A hernia can also develop near the area of a surgery you had before.. Pressure from lifting, straining, or coughing can tear the weak area, causing the hernia to bulge and be painful.. If you cannot push a hernia back into place, the tissue may become trapped outside the belly wall. If the hernia gets twisted and loses its blood supply, it will swell and die. This is called a strangulated hernia. It usually causes a lot of pain. It needs treatment right away.. Some hernias need to be repaired to prevent a strangulated hernia. If your hernia causes symptoms or is large, you may need surgery. ...
To date the scientific definition Hernia Center does not exist and this term is beeing used by hospitals and private institutions as a marketing instrument. Hernia surgery has become increasingly more complex over the pass 25 years. Differenciated use of the various techniques in hernia surgery has been adopted as a taillord approach program and requires intensive engagement with, and extensive experience of, the entire field of hernia surgery. Therefore there is a need for hernia centers. A basic requirement for a credible certification process for hernia centers involves definition of requirements and there verification by hernia societies and/or non-profit organizations that are interested in assuring the best possible quality of hernia surgery. At present there are two processes for certification of hernia centers by hernia societies or non-profit organizations.

D-r Evdoshenko V.V. and D-r Fedenko V.V. are performing an operation.. One of the complications after gastric shunting - Roux-en-Y gastric bypass- is a formation of the internal hernia near the window of mesocolon. This window is created for pulling the loop of Roux colon into the superior part of the abdomen. Closure of that window at the end of operation is compulsory. Nevertheless, the closure sometimes is not efficient, and the situation is complicated by development of the internal hernia. Clinically it is manifested by intermitting intestinal obstruction, that within some period of time will be progressing, and the total obstruction will take place later on. This operation demonstrates the situation when the small colon is almost completely shifted into the cavity of omentum bursa through mesocolon window. So, the small colon has been shifted into proper position, open defect is stitched by continuous suture. ...

WHAT IS A HERNIA?. Parents will typically notice a bulge in the groin or abdominal wall, where there shouldnt be one, says CHOC pediatric surgeon Dr. Troy Reyna. This may be a hernia, and if so, its caused by tissue that is protruding through a hole in the musculature. The areas around the groin and belly button are the two most common regions for hernias in babies and young children. They should be evaluated promptly by a specialist, Dr. Reyna says.. UMBILICAL HERNIAS. Umbilical hernias are what we call outies, Dr. Reyna says. This is a bulge in the belly button and it may not be seen until the babys umbilical cord falls off. Umbilical hernias are among the more common hernias in babies and are often present at birth, says Dr. Reyna. They typically arent painful or dangerous, but on occasion they might cause pain. About 75-80 percent of umbilical hernias will close on their own by age two without treatment as the baby grows and develops anti-gravity muscles. If its still there when ...
Hernia Repair (Surgery). The standard method of hernia repair involves making an incision in the abdominal wall. Normal healthy tissues are cut until the area of weakness is found. This area, the hernia, is then repaired with sutures. Often a prosthetic material, or another plastic material, is sutured in place to strengthen the area of weakness. Finally, the skin and other healthy tissues that were cut at the beginning are sutured back together to complete the repair.. Newer hernia repair involves minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques. However, hernia operation with open techniques is still a valid option reaching the highest standards of care. Laparoscopic techniques of hernia repair are especially attractive when patients are dealing with recurrent hernias or bilateral inguinal hernias.. ...
Paraesophageal hernia is a type of hiatal hernia. A hiatal hernia is a condition that causes part of your stomach to bulge through the hiatus (small opening) in your diaphragm. They can also cause difficulty eating, weight loss, and anemia, and sometimes heartburn and vomiting. Change Your Sleep Position. Symptoms of a strangulated hiatal hernia include sudden severe chest pain and difficulty swallowing. The problem with the use of medications is they dont address the initial cause of the problem, only the symptoms. Part of your stomach is somewhere it does not belong, so it makes sense that discomfort follows utilization of the stomach and esophagus.

Pease, Jr., Grafton, Mass. Application December 8, 1951, Serial No. 260,737 3 Claims. (01. 128-82) My invention relates to surgical inserts adapted to be placed permanently in the human body for the purpose of strengthening weak spots and promoting the growth of new tissues. More particularly it is concerned with a novel insert particularly adapted for use in hernia operations. Hernias constitute one of the most prevalent disabilities or weaknesses of the human race. Roughly they may be divided into two classifications: (1) hernias of the abdominal region at some structurally weak point, and (2) hernias of any part of the body caused by an injury or as the result of a surgical operation. Perhaps the most common hernias are those of men located at the openings in the abdominal walls through which pass the ...
Enterocele - What sort of disorder is an enterocele? Internal hernia-ish. Weakness in the pelvic muscles that support the innards can cause prolapse (bulging) of various organs, including the small bowel (enterocele), urinary bladder (cystocele), uterus, rectum (rectocele).
A Bochdalek hernia is one of two forms of a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, the other form being Morgagni hernia. A Bochdalek hernia is a congenital abnormality in which an opening exists in the infants diaphragm, allowing normally intra-abdominal organs (particularly the stomach and intestines) to protrude into the thoracic cavity. In the majority of patients, the affected lung will be deformed, and the resulting lung compression can be life-threatening. Bochdalek hernias occur more commonly on the posterior left side (85%, versus right side 15%). This type of hernia was first studied and documented by the Czech Anatomist and Pathologist, Vincenz Alexander Bochdalek (1801-1883). In normal Bochdalek hernia cases, the symptoms are often observable simultaneously with the babys birth. A few of the symptoms of a Bochdalek Hernia include difficulty breathing, fast respiration and increased heart rate. Also, if the baby appears to have cyanosis (blue-tinted skin) this can also be a sign. Another ...
The circular area in the padded piece pushes up into the hernia allowing the body wall to close over in a few weeks depending on how big the hernia is. If anything is pushing out through the abdominal hole (and you can feel the crias gut moving) then the belts are excellent at resolving the hernia. If nothing is pushing through the hole you may not need to use a belt at all. For a large hernia (the width of two fingers) it might take up to 6 weeks to close over, less for a small hole. I start putting the belt on from the back end first (the single strap on one end of the belt) holding the bulge in the belt over the hernia area. Then, once I have fitted the whole belt (which must be secure), I undo the strap that goes behind the hernia to check it is in the right place or adjust the straps accordingly. The hernia mustnt get trapped - so the straps need to fit snugly and can be adjusted every so often to allow the cria to grow. These instructions are purely how to fit an alpaca hernia belt. If ...
Hernia occurs when part of an internal organ bulges through a weak area of muscle. Most hernias occur in the abdomen. There are several types of hernias, including • Inguinal which is the most common type occurs in the groin • Umbilical is around the belly button • Incisional, through a scar • Hiatal, a small opening in the diaphragm that allows the upper part of the stomach to move up into the chest. • Congenital diaphragmatic, a birth defect that needs surgery Hernias are common. They can affect men, women and children. A combination of muscle weakness and straining, such as with heavy lifting might contribute to it. Some people are born with weak abdominal muscles and may be more likely to get a hernia. The usual treatment for a hernia is surgery to repair the opening in the muscle wall. Untreated hernias can cause pain and health problems.
Limiting activity or eliminating excess weight may provide temporary relief. Wearing a truss or binder has also offered temporary relief. The only cure for an incisional hernia, however, is surgery. There are two reasons for hernia surgery: to correct or prevent a dangerous strangulated hernia, and to eliminate the pain that may be interfering with your normal activity. Although there are always risks and side effects associated with surgery, todays surgical techniques provide patients with treatment options that offer minimal post-operative discomfort, speedy recovery, and lasting relief.. The repair of a hernia depends on the size of the hernia. The standard method of hernia repair involves making an incision in the abdominal wall. Normal healthy tissues are cut until the area of weakness is found. This area, the hernia, is then repaired with sutures. Often a prosthetic material such as mesh, another plastic or biological material is sutured in place to strengthen the area and close the ...

Your recovery period after laparoscopic surgery is relatively short when compared to conventional open surgery. Most patients go home the same day and return to work as early as 2-3 days (average 7-10 days). You will be given pain medication along with a laxative to prevent constipation.. If you suspect you have a hernia, consult with your primary care physician promptly. Hernias tend to get bigger over time and do not resolve without treatment. Check here different types of hernias you could have.. Delaying your hernia treatment can result in intestinal incarceration (intestine is trapped inside the hernia sac) or strangulation (intestine is trapped and develops gangrene). The latter is a surgical emergency.. Under certain circumstances the hernia may be watched and followed closely by a physician. Consult your physician to determine if an observation is the proper course of action.. ...
To support the broad ligament, Spinning Babies ® offers several techniques, in particular two of the Three Sisters of Balance ™, Reboso Manteada and Forward Leaning Inversion. This link provides some wonderful information around how to do the Reboso Manteada. The Reboso Manteada allows a support person to take the role of the broad ligament for a moment in time, which can provide some relief, balance and comfort in pregnancy. It can allow the partner to take the weight of the baby for just a few minutes. Its also a fantastic technique as it is a gentle, slow jiggle and fascia loves to let go with a jiggle. A Forward Leaning Inversion may also support the broad ligament to take a break and also support itself to come into balance. This link will provide the information around how to do a forward leaning inversion and the contraindications of doing a forward leaning inversion (FLI). Pleased read the contraindications - its important to only attempt an FLI if you feel well, healthy and you ...

Hernia is the protrusion of intestinal content through a natural or a post-surgery defect of the abdominal wall (external hernia), or through an internal weakness zone (internal hernia). Hernias in children are frequent, including internal and congenital hernias, particularly congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
You cant prevent the weakness in the abdominal wall that leads to you getting a hernia. However, not smoking, avoiding constipation and maintaining a healthy weight should reduce the risk.. Smoking can cause coughing, which can put pressure on your abdomen and lead to a hernia or worsen the symptoms if you already have one.. Constipation can lead to straining, which increases pressure on the abdominal wall. You can avoid constipation by maintaining a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and fibre as well drinking plenty of fluids.. Obesity places the abdominal wall under constant pressure from excessive body fat. Losing weight can reduce your risk of developing a hernia. If you already have a hernia and need an operation, maintaining a healthy weight may reduce the risk of a hernia coming back after it has been repaired.. Being physically active may help to prevent hernias, but certain types of exercise can put too much pressure on your abdomen.. Beneficial exercises which strengthen the core may ...
