A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. For example, the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall.
Many hernias occur in the abdomen between your chest and hips, but they can also appear in the upper thigh and groin areas.
– Inguinal Hernia
– Incisional Hernia
– Epigastric Hernia
– Umbilical Hernia
– Hiatus Hernia
– Recurrent and Complex Hernia
Most hernias aren’t immediately life-threatening, but they don’t go away on their own. Mainly surgery is required to prevent dangerous complications.
Q.1) How Hernia is caused?
Ans: Hernia is very common in India. Important causes are,
- a congenital condition that occurs during development in the womb and is present from birth
- damage from an injury or surgery
- chronic coughing or chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD)
- strenuous exercise or lifting heavy weights
- pregnancy, especially having multiple pregnancies
- constipation, which causes you to strain when having a bowel movement
- being overweight or obese
- fluid in the abdomen, or ascites
Q.2) How a common man can identify that it’s a Hernia?
- What you may feel:
A dull ache, feeling of weakness, heaviness, pressure, tingling, or a burning sensation in your abdomen, groin, or scrotum.
It may get worse when you stand for long periods or strain your abdominal muscles, such as when you cough, lift heavy objects, play sports, or have a bowel movement.
Heartburn, gas distension, regurgitation of stomach contents in mouth can be a sign of Hiatus Hernia.
It may feel better with rest.
- What you may see:
A soft bulge in the groin area or scrotum that you can push back in with gentle pressure or that gets smaller or disappears when you lie down.
The bulge may get bigger over the course of the day or when you cough, bend, lift, or strain.
- What you may notice:
A sudden, sharp pain in the groin area or a sensation that something had “torn.” Even if you have no other symptoms, it is important than you see your doctor as soon as possible.
Q.3) What are the Surgical Options?
- Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery: A hernia is usually treated with surgery. The three main types of hernia surgery are open repair, laparoscopic (minimally invasive) repair, and robotic repair. This article provides details of each procedure.
- Open Surgery for Hernia Repair: Open hernia repair is where an incision, or cut, is made in the groin. The hernia “sac” containing the bulging intestine is identified. The surgeon then pushes the hernia back into the abdomen and strengthens the abdominal wall with stitches or synthetic mesh.
- TAR Surgery for Recurrent and Complex Hernia Surgery: complex ventral hernia repair is a frequent and challenging topic. Reconstructive techniques are numerous but most of them are unable to achieve the goals of hernioplasty. Posterior component separation with transverses abdominis muscle release (TAR) is a novel approach that offers a solution for complex ventral hernias.
