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 ...

Extracted from text ... 18 SA JOURNAL OF RADIOLOGY ? June 2006 A 30-year-old man was referred from a peripheral hospital with a 6-day history of abdominal pain and vomiting. He had been constipated for the previous 3 weeks. He was acutely ill and de hydrated. His pulse rate was 102/min, blood pressure (BP) 115/65 mmHg, respiratory rate 20/min and temperature 37.9 ?C. Abdominal examination revealed a distended stomach with a succussion splash. There was no rebound tenderness and rectal examination revealed stools in the rectum. A provisional diagnosis of a gastric outlet obstruction was made and a nasogastric tube was inserted draining green ..
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 ...

... is a consequence of lactase deficiency, which may be genetic (primary hypolactasia and primary congenital alactasia) or environmentally induced (secondary or acquired hypoalactasia). In either case, symptoms are caused by insufficient levels of lactase in the lining of the duodenum. Lactose, a disaccharide molecule found in milk and dairy products, cannot be directly absorbed through the wall of the small intestine into the bloodstream, so, in the absence of lactase, passes intact into the colon[citation needed]. Bacteria in the colon can metabolise lactose, and the resulting fermentation produces copious amounts of gas (a mixture of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and methane) that causes the various abdominal symptoms. The unabsorbed sugars and fermentation products also raise the osmotic pressure of the colon, causing an increased flow of water into the bowels (diarrhea).[18][9] The LCT gene provides the instructions for making lactase. The specific DNA sequence in the MCM6 gene ...
Prevention includes the use of breast milk and probiotics.[2] A 2012 policy by the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended feeding preterm infants human milk, finding "significant short- and long-term beneficial effects," including reducing the rate of NEC by a factor of two or more.[10] Small amounts of oral feeds of human milk starting as soon as possible, while the infant is being primarily fed intravenously, primes the immature gut to mature and become ready to receive greater intake by mouth.[11] Human milk from a milk bank or donor can be used if mother's milk is unavailable. The gut mucosal cells do not get enough nourishment from arterial blood supply to stay healthy, especially in very premature infants, where the blood supply is limited due to immature development of the capillaries, so nutrients from the lumen of the gut are needed. A Cochrane review in 2014 found that supplementation of probiotics enterally "prevents severe NEC as well as all-cause mortality in preterm ...
Partially digested food starts to arrive in the small intestine as semi-liquid chyme, one hour after it is eaten.[citation needed] The stomach is half empty after an average of 1.2 hours.[31] After four or five hours the stomach has emptied.[32] In the small intestine, the pH becomes crucial; it needs to be finely balanced in order to activate digestive enzymes. The chyme is very acidic, with a low pH, having been released from the stomach and needs to be made much more alkaline. This is achieved in the duodenum by the addition of bile from the gall bladder combined with the bicarbonate secretions from the pancreatic duct and also from secretions of bicarbonate-rich mucus from duodenal glands known as Brunner's glands. The chyme arrives in the intestines having been released from the stomach through the opening of the pyloric sphincter. The resulting alkaline fluid mix neutralises the gastric acid which would damage the lining of the intestine. The mucus component lubricates the walls of the ...
Dysentery is initially managed by maintaining fluid intake using oral rehydration therapy. If this treatment cannot be adequately maintained due to vomiting or the profuseness of diarrhea, hospital admission may be required for intravenous fluid replacement. Ideally, no antimicrobial therapy should be administered until microbiological microscopy and culture studies have established the specific infection involved. When laboratory services are not available, it may be necessary to administer a combination of drugs, including an amoebicidal drug to kill the parasite and an antibiotic to treat any associated bacterial infection. Anyone with bloody diarrhea needs immediate medical help. Treatment often starts with an oral rehydrating solution-water mixed with salt and carbohydrates-to prevent dehydration. (Emergency relief services often distribute inexpensive packets of sugars and mineral salts that can be mixed with clean water and used to restore lifesaving fluids in dehydrated children gravely ...
Ipecac or ipecacuanha consists of the dried rhizome and roots of Cephaelis ipecacuanha. The medical virtues of ipecac are almost entirely due to the action of its alkaloids-emetine and cephaline. Till today, emetine remains one of the best drugs for treating amoebic liver abscess. It has a direct action on the trophozoites. Its greater concentration and duration of action in the liver as compared to that in the intestinal wall explains its high efficacy in amoebic liver abscess and also its low parasitic cure rate for intestinal amoebiasis. The drug is detoxicated and eliminated slowly. It may, therefore, produce cumulative effects. In man, emetine poisoning is characterized by muscular tremors, weakness and pain in the extremities which tend to persist until drug administration is stopped. Gastro-intestinal symptoms include nausea, vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. The latter may be mistaken for a recurrence of amoebic dysentery. Many clinicians fear the occurrence of cardiac toxicity due to this ...
Adhesions form as a natural part of the body's healing process after surgery in a similar way that a scar forms. The term "adhesion" is applied when the scar extends from within one tissue across to another, usually across a virtual space such as the peritoneal cavity. Adhesion formation post-surgery typically occurs when two injured surfaces are close to one another. This often causes inflammation and causes fibrin deposits onto the damaged tissues.[2] The fibrin then connects the two adjacent structures where damage of the tissues occurred. The fibrin acts like a glue to seal the injury and builds the fledgling adhesion, said at this point to be "fibrinous." In body cavities such as the peritoneal, pericardial, and synovial cavities, a family of fibrinolytic enzymes may act to limit the extent of the initial fibrinous adhesion, and may even dissolve it. In many cases, the production or activity of these enzymes are compromised because of injury, however, and the fibrinous adhesion persists. If ...
... (TD) is a stomach and intestinal infection. TD is defined as the passage of unformed stool (one or more by some definitions, three or more by others) while traveling.[2][3] It may be accompanied by abdominal cramps, nausea, fever, and bloating.[3] Occasionally bloody diarrhea may occur.[5] Most travelers recover within four days with little or no treatment.[3] About 10% of people may have symptoms for a week.[3] Bacteria are responsible for more than half of cases.[3] The bacteria enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) are typically the most common except in Southeast Asia, where Campylobacter is more prominent.[2][3] About 10% to 20% of cases are due to norovirus.[3] Protozoa such as Giardia may cause longer term disease.[3] The risk is greatest in the first two weeks of travel and among young adults.[2] People affected are more often from the developed world.[2] Recommendations for prevention include eating only properly cleaned and cooked food, drinking bottled water, and ...
An esophageal motility disorder (EMD) is any medical disorder causing difficulty in swallowing, regurgitation of food and a spasm-type pain which can be brought on by an allergic reaction to certain foods. The most prominent one is dysphagia. It is a part of CREST syndrome, referring to the five main features: calcinosis, Raynaud syndrome, esophageal dysmotility, sclerodactyly and telangiectasia.[1] ...
Women are almost twice as likely as men to form gallstones especially during the fertile years; the gap narrows after the menopause. The underlying mechanism is female sex hormones; parity, oral contraceptive use and estrogen replacement therapy are established risk factors for cholesterol gallstone formation. Female sex hormones adversely influence hepatic bile secretion and gallbladder function. Estrogens increase cholesterol secretion and diminish bile salt secretion, while progestins act by reducing bile salt secretion and impairing gallbladder emptying leading to stasis. A new 4th generation progestin, drospirenone, used in some oral contraceptives may further heighten the risk of gallstone disease and cholecystectomy; however, the increased risk is quite modest and not likely to be clinically meaningful.[13] A retrospective (historical) cohort study was performed on a very large data base including 1980 and 1981 Medicaid billing data from the states of Michigan and Minnesota in which ...
There are various explanations why liver dysfunction or portosystemic shunting might lead to encephalopathy. In healthy subjects, nitrogen-containing compounds from the intestine, generated by gut bacteria from food, are transported by the portal vein to the liver, where 80-90% are metabolised through the urea cycle and/or excreted immediately. This process is impaired in all subtypes of hepatic encephalopathy, either because the hepatocytes (liver cells) are incapable of metabolising the waste products or because portal venous blood bypasses the liver through collateral circulation or a medically constructed shunt. Nitrogenous waste products accumulate in the systemic circulation (hence the older term "portosystemic encephalopathy"). The most important waste product is ammonia (NH3). This small molecule crosses the blood-brain barrier and is absorbed and metabolised by the astrocytes, a population of cells in the brain that constitutes 30% of the cerebral cortex. Astrocytes use ammonia when ...
Many people with Barrett's esophagus do not have dysplasia. Medical societies recommend that if a patient has Barrett's esophagus, and if the past two endoscopy and biopsy examinations have confirmed the absence of dysplasia, then the patient should not have another endoscopy within three years.[24][25][26] Endoscopic surveillance of people with Barrett's esophagus is often recommended, although little direct evidence supports this practice.[1] Treatment options for high-grade dysplasia include surgical removal of the esophagus (esophagectomy) or endoscopic treatments such as endoscopic mucosal resection or ablation (destruction).[1] The risk of malignancy is highest in the U.S. in Caucasian men over fifty years of age with more than five years of symptoms. Current recommendations include routine endoscopy and biopsy (looking for dysplastic changes). Although in the past physicians have taken a watchful waiting approach, newly published research supports consideration of intervention for ...

... is the condition of having multiple pouches (diverticula) in the colon that are not inflamed. These are outpockets of the colonic mucosa and submucosa through weaknesses of muscle layers in the colon wall.[1] They typically cause no symptoms.[2] Diverticular disease occurs when diverticula become inflamed, known as diverticulitis, or bleed.[3] They typically occur in the sigmoid colon, which is a common place for increased pressure. The left side of the colon is more commonly affected in the United States while the right side is more commonly affected in Asia.[4] Diagnosis is often during routine colonoscopy or as an incidental finding during CT scan.[2] It is common in Western countries with about half of those over the age of 60 in Canada and the United States affected.[4] Diverticula are uncommon before the age of 40, and increase in incidence beyond that age.[5] Rates are lower in Africa which has been attributed to a shorter life expectancy and poor healthcare ...
Polyps on the vocal folds can take on many different forms, and can sometimes result from vocal abuse, although this is not always the cause. They can occur on one or both vocal folds, and appear as swelling, a bump (similar to a nodule), a stalk-like growth, or a blister-like lesion. Most polyps are larger than nodules, which are more similar to callouses on the vocal folds. Polyps and nodules can exhibit similar symptoms including hoarseness or breathiness, "rough" or "scratchy" voice, harshness in vocal quality, shooting pain from ear to ear, sensation of having "a lump in the back of the throat", neck pain, decreased pitch range in the voice, and vocal and bodily fatigue. If an individual experiences symptoms for more than 2 to 3 weeks, they should see a physician. For a diagnosis, a thorough evaluation of the voice should include a physical examination, preferably by an otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor) who specializes in voice, a voice evaluation with a speech-language ...

After taking a thorough history, the diagnosis of colonic volvulus is usually easily included in the differential diagnosis. Abdominal plain x-rays are commonly confirmatory for a volvulus, especially if a "bent inner tube" sign or a "coffee bean" sign are seen. These refer to the shape of the air filled closed loop of colon which forms the volvulus. Should the diagnosis be in doubt, a barium enema may be used to demonstrate a "bird's beak" at the point where the segment of proximal bowel and distal bowel rotate to form the volvulus. This area shows an acute and sharp tapering and looks like a bird's beak. If a perforation is suspected, barium should not be used due to its potentially lethal effects when distributed throughout the free infraperitoneal cavity. Gastrografin, which is safer, can be substituted for barium. The differential diagnosis includes the much more common constricting or obstructing carcinoma. In approximately 80 percent of colonic obstructions, an invasive carcinoma is found ...

Antibiotics are commonly used as a curing method for pancreatic abscesses although their role remains controversial. Prophylactic antibiotics are normally chosen based on the type of flora and the degree of antibiotic penetration into the abscess. Pancreatic abscesses are more likely to host enteric organisms and pathogens such as E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus mirabilis, and Streptococcus species.[5] Medical therapy is usually given to people whose general health status does not allow surgery. On the other hand, antibiotics are not recommended in patients with pancreatitis, unless the presence of an infected abscess has been proved. Although there have been reported cases of patients who were given medical treatment and survived, primary drainage of the abscess is the main treatment used to cure this condition. Drainage usually involves a surgical procedure. It has been shown that CT-guided drainage brought inferior ...
The definitive treatment for cholangitis is relief of the underlying biliary obstruction.[1] This is usually deferred until 24-48 hours after admission, when the patient is stable and has shown some improvement with antibiotics, but may need to happen as an emergency in case of ongoing deterioration despite adequate treatment,[1] or if antibiotics are not effective in reducing the signs of infection (which happens in 15% of cases).[2][3] Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the most common approach in unblocking the bile duct. This involves endoscopy (passing a fiberoptic tube through the stomach into the duodenum), identification of the ampulla of Vater and insertion of a small tube into the bile duct. A sphincterotomy (making a cut in the sphincter of Oddi) is typically done to ease the flow of bile from the duct and to allow insertion of instruments to extract gallstones that are obstructing the common bile duct; alternatively or additionally, the common bile duct orifice ...

... (PUD) is a break in the inner lining of the stomach, the first part of the small intestine, or sometimes the lower esophagus.[1][7] An ulcer in the stomach is called a gastric ulcer, while one in the first part of the intestines is a duodenal ulcer.[1] The most common symptoms of a duodenal ulcer are waking at night with upper abdominal pain and upper abdominal pain that improves with eating.[1] With a gastric ulcer, the pain may worsen with eating.[8] The pain is often described as a burning or dull ache.[1] Other symptoms include belching, vomiting, weight loss, or poor appetite.[1] About a third of older people have no symptoms.[1] Complications may include bleeding, perforation, and blockage of the stomach.[2] Bleeding occurs in as many as 15% of cases.[2] Common causes include the bacteria Helicobacter pylori and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).[1] Other, less common causes include tobacco smoking, stress due to serious illness, Behcet disease, ...
Anal abscesses are rarely treated with a simple course of antibiotics. In almost all cases surgery will need to take place to remove the abscess. Treatment is possible in an emergency department under local anesthesia, but it is highly preferred to be formally admitted to a hospital and to have the surgery performed in an operating room under general anesthesia. Generally speaking, a fairly small but deep incision is performed close to the root of the abscess. The surgeon will allow the abscess to drain its exudate and attempt to discover any other related lesions in the area. This is one of the most basic types of surgery, and is usually performed in less than thirty minutes by the anal surgical team. Generally, a portion of the exudate is sent for microbiological analysis to determine the type of infecting bacteria. The incision is not closed (stitched), as the damaged tissues must heal from the inside toward the skin over a period of time. The affected individual is often sent home within ...
... is a medical condition in which injury to the small intestine occurs due to not enough blood supply.[2] It can come on suddenly, known as acute mesenteric ischemia, or gradually, known as chronic mesenteric ischemia.[1] The acute form of the disease often presents with sudden severe abdominal pain and is associated with a high risk of death.[1] The chronic form typically presents more gradually with abdominal pain after eating, unintentional weight loss, vomiting, and fear of eating.[1][2] Risk factors for acute mesenteric ischemia include atrial fibrillation, heart failure, chronic kidney failure, being prone to forming blood clots, and previous myocardial infarction.[2] There are four mechanisms by which poor blood flow occurs: a blood clot from elsewhere getting lodged in an artery, a new blood clot forming in an artery, a blood clot forming in the superior mesenteric vein, and insufficient blood flow due to low blood pressure or spasms of arteries.[3][6] Chronic disease ...
... , also known as infectious diarrhea, is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract -- the stomach and small intestine.[8] Symptoms may include diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.[1] Fever, lack of energy, and dehydration may also occur.[2][3] This typically lasts less than two weeks.[8] It is not related to influenza though it has been called the "stomach flu".[9] Gastroenteritis is usually caused by viruses.[4] However, bacteria, parasites, and fungus can also cause gastroenteritis.[2][4] In children, rotavirus is the most common cause of severe disease.[10] In adults, norovirus and Campylobacter are common causes.[11][12] Eating improperly prepared food, drinking contaminated water, or close contact with a person who is infected can spread the disease.[2] Treatment is generally the same with or without a definitive diagnosis, so testing to confirm is usually not needed.[2] Prevention includes hand washing with soap, drinking clean water, proper disposal of human waste, and ...
Unlike in Crohn's disease, the gastrointestinal aspects of ulcerative colitis can generally be cured by surgical removal of the large intestine, though extraintestinal symptoms may persist. This procedure is necessary in the event of: exsanguinating hemorrhage, frank perforation, or documented or strongly suspected carcinoma. Surgery is also indicated for people with severe colitis or toxic megacolon. People with symptoms that are disabling and do not respond to drugs may wish to consider whether surgery would improve the quality of life.[14] The removal of the entire large intestine, known as a proctocolectomy, results in a permanent ileostomy - where a stoma is created by pulling the terminal ileum through the abdomen. Intestinal contents are emptied into a removable ostomy bag which is secured around the stoma using adhesive.[citation needed] Another surgical option for ulcerative colitis that is affecting most of the large bowel is called the ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA). This is a ...

  • Richter's hernia: A portion of circumference of bowel is the content. (
  • A hernia is a lump that results from a part of the intestine (bowel) slipping through a weakness in the abdominal wall. (
  • If the hernia becomes stuck outside, then the bowel may become obstructed leading to complete bowel obstruction if left untreated. (
  • In this case the hernia has become stuck and the narrow ring through which is has passed has become so tight that it is constricting the blood supply to the bowel or bowel contents in the hernia. (
  • The bowel in the hernia may die from lack of blood leading to serious peritonitis and infection. (
  • One major danger of a hernia is that if bowel is contained within the protruding loop it may hinder or stop the flow through the intestine (occlusion). (

  • Any fat or bowel in the hernia is freed and pushed back or removed. (
  • Fatty tissue is the most common content of a hernia followed by bowel loops and organ. (
  • In a small child, the hernia may make its presence known when the child coughs, cries, or is straining during a normal bowel movement. (

  • A true umbilical hernia is a defect in the anterior abdominal wall underlying the umbilicus, through which the intestine can protrude. (
  • In case of inguinal hernia, the part of the intestine that pushes out through weak muscular lining of the belly may even become dead, if it gets stuck in the weakened cavity or hole as it loses all blood supply here. (
  • A hernia is not an emergency unless the tissue or intestine becomes trapped, which can cut off blood supply. (
  • This is a dangerous situation because the part of your intestine inside the hernia can become strangulated, which is a medical emergency. (
  • Hernias happen when part of an organ or tissue in the body (such as a loop of intestine) pushes through an opening or weak spot in a muscle wall. (
  • In inguinal hernias, part of the peritoneum, intestine, or fat tissue protrudes through a gap in the abdominal wall. (
  • But if the hernia isn't causing any symptoms and the intestine isn't pinched, you can wait a few weeks or months and see what happens. (
  • And when an incarcerated hernia is not treated, the blood supply to the intestine may be cut off causing strangulation. (
  • This is when intestine in an incarcerated hernia has its blood flow cut off. (

  • And the symptoms of a hiatal hernia are usually caused by GERD. (
  • Early on, the hernia may be reducible - the protruding structures can be pushed back gently into their normal places. (
  • Most hernias are reducible, which means that the herniated contents can be manipulated back into the abdominal cavity. (
  • An incarcerated inguinal hernia happens when tissue becomes stuck in the groin and isn't reducible. (
  • To lower the risk of a hernia becoming irreducible or strangulated, the sooner a reducible hernia is repaired the better. (
  • Most hernias are caused by a combination of pressure and an opening or weakness of muscle or connective tissue. (
  • A hernia (pronounced: HUR-nee-uh) is an opening or weakness in the wall of a muscle, tissue, or membrane that normally holds an organ in place. (
  • Hernias are caused by a combination of muscle weakness and strain, although the cause of the weakness and the type of strain may vary. (
  • And most teens who are diagnosed with a hernia actually have had a weakness of the muscles or other abdominal tissues from birth (called a congenital defect ). (
  • A hernia can be congenital (present at birth) or develop in children who have a weakness in their abdominal wall. (
  • According to Dr. Kuperman, abdominal (or umbilical) hernias like are a result of weakness in the rectus abdominus muscles, which run from the pubis to the rib cage. (
  • Unlike hernias seen in adults, these areas are not always considered a weakness in the muscle wall, but a normal area that has not yet closed. (
  • Although there is no way to prevent hernias due to a congenital weakness, you can help reduce your risk for a hiatal hernia and control progression. (
  • According to Mayo Clinic, hernias can be caused by a variety of factors such as straining when urinating or passing stool, heavy lifting and abdominal wall weakness. (
  • Women are more likely to develop a hernia in the femoral canal due to a weakness there. (
