When there is a weakness or hole in the walls of the muscles usually happens in the abdominal organ (the peritoneum) which causes hernia. The peritoneal defect allows the organs to push through or herniated which produces a bulge or balloon-like sac. Severe pain and other complications results, while the intestine or abdominal loop drives into the sac. Hernia is common for both the genders.
Though, there are different Types of Hernia, the most common type is inguinal (abdominal) and groin (the area between the abdomen and the upper thigh) hernia. Other types are umbilical, incision, and femoral hernia.
At present, no deep cuts are done. With the help of laparoscopic surgery minimally invasive procedure is handled. The surgeon does a cut the area of the hernia. The muscle tissue, bulging tissue or organ is in the back of the muscle wall are repaired and the skin in closed. A plastic mesh is used to repair the defect of muscle tissue in most inguinal hernia surgeries.
General difficulty in urination will be the core issue in this procedure, which is eased out by keeping a catheter in the bladder to drain the urine for some days. After the surgery, the wound is closed with clips or stitches which will be removed after a couple of weeks.
Hernia is treated as an out- patient procedure, and on the same day the patient can go back to home. Prior to the operation, the abdomen should be kept empty. After a thorough analysis of the patient physical condition, some pre-operative tests and anesthesia type will be determined by the surgeons.
