hernia and HYDROCELE. An inguinal both sides. Inguinal hernia is more common in premature infants and appears as swelling in the groin.
HERNIA and HYDROCELE An inguinal hernia is a common condition in males that occurs when a segment of intestine passes through the abdominal wall in the groin on one or both sides. Inguinal hernia is more common in premature infants and appears as swelling in the groin. It may be more evident with crying and straining. It is important to repair this condition to prevent the intestinal segment from becoming strangulated or "fixed" in the groin wall. The procedure is called a herniorrhaphy. Hydrocele is a condition where the scrotum is abnormally large due to excess fluid in the scrotum and poor drainage. The size of the hydrocele may fluctuate and this condition may occur on one or both sides. Many times a hydrocele is associated with inguinal hernia due to a weakening in the groin. Both conditions may be repaired with an outpatient surgical procedure. The information provided in this section should in no way serve as medical advice.

Hiatus Hernia
Hiatus hernia (also called hiatal hernia) is a disorder affecting the gastroesophageal junction, the site where the esophagus (food tube) joins the stomach.
Normal Structure
See the picture on the left. The esophagus is a tube, measuring about 10 inches long, that starts at the lower end of the pharynx (throat) and extends down through the chest and into the abdomen through an opening in the diaphragm . The diaphragm is a sheet-like muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity and is one of the main muscles that allows us to breathe. The opening in the diaphragm through which the esophagus passes is called the hiatus . At its lower end the esophagus joins the stomach . The stomach is a bag-like structure where some digestion of food occurs. The stomach contains very strong acid (hydrochloric acid) that performs two functions - the acid kills most bacteria (but not all) and activates a digestive enzyme. The stomach is usually resistant to this acid and is not harmed.
How Hiatus Hernia Occurs
Notice in the picture how the esophagus joins the stomach at an angle. This angle helps to prevent the acid in the stomach from flowing into the esophagus. In hiatus hernia, the stomach pushes its way through the hiatus into the chest

(opens new window) Evaluation
While the majority of diaphragmatic hernias are isolated, further (careful) fetal evaluation is indicated to rule out other birth defects as well as chromosomal anomalies, since they may adversely affect the outcome. Important prognostic predictors (for survival) include the degree of fetal liver herniation into the chest, the presence or absence of other anomalies as well as the Lung-to-Head Ratio (LHR), and ultrasound-based measurement of the lung area to the head circumference.

A description of this disease and of the different techniques of surgical repair available today.
STOMA ('Parastomal') HERNIAS A Hernia is a weakness or split in the muscle wall of the abdomen which allows the abdominal contents (usually some part of the intestine) to bulge out. The bulge is particularly noticeable upon tensing the abdominal wall muscles - such as occurs when coughing, sneezing, straining or simply standing. (For a full description of all other (non-stoma) hernias and their treatments, click here
Stomas pose an additional problem. When a stoma is brought out to the surface of the abdomen it must pass through the muscles of the abdominal wall, thus a potential site of weakness is immediately created. In the ideal situation the abdominal wall muscles form a snug fit around the stoma opening. However, sometimes the muscles come away from the edges of the stoma thus creating a hernia - in this case, an area of the abdominal wall adjacent to the stoma where there is no muscle. Factors that can contribute to causing a stoma hernia to occur include coughing, being overweight or having developed an infection in the wound at the time the stoma was made. The development of a stoma hernia is often a gradual phenomenon, with the area next to the stoma stretching and becoming weaker with the passage of time. This weakness, or gap, means that every time one strains, coughs, sneezes or stands up, the area of the abdomen next to the stoma bulges, or the whole stoma itself protrudes as it is pushed forwards by the rest of the abdominal contents behind it. As with all hernias the size will increase as time goes by. Stoma hernias are rarely painful, but are usually uncomfortable and can become extremely inconvenient.

Encyclopedia Index H hernia, inguinal Search
hernia, inguinal
Most commonly, a hernia is a swelling that you or your doctor discover in your child's inguinal ("groin") area. They are much more common in boys than in girls, although inguinal hernias do occur in girls. A hernia usually pops up without warning and is noticed at bath or diaper change time, often when the child is crying. The area they first appear in lies just above the scrotum, on a line drawn from the scrotum up to the nipple on that side. What has happened is that there was a weakness in the floor of the abdomen where the blood vessels, nerve and spermatic cord leading down to the testicle penetrate the wall of the abdominal cavity. Over time, as the baby cries and normally strains to push out his bowel movements, the pressure gradually works this weakness into an opening through the abdominal wall (first smaller and then larger) and ultimately through a sort of tunnel and down into the testicular sac (scrotum). When the hole is large enough, a short section of intestine can slide down into the tunnel and the scrotum.

What is a hernia?
A hernia occurs when a section of intestine protrudes through a weakness in the abdominal muscles. A soft bulge is seen underneath the skin where the hernia has occurred. In children, a hernia usually occurs in one of two places:
  • around the belly button in the groin area
A hernia that occurs in the belly-button area is called an umbilical hernia . A hernia that occurs in the groin area is called an inguinal hernia What causes a hernia? A hernia can develop in the first few months after the baby is born because of a weakness in the muscles of the abdomen. Inguinal and umbilical hernias happen for slightly different reasons. What is an inguinal hernia? As a male fetus grows and matures during pregnancy, the testicles develop in the abdomen and then move down into the scrotum through an area called the inguinal canal. Shortly after the baby is born, the inguinal canal closes, preventing the testicles from moving back into the abdomen. If this area does not close off completely, a loop of intestine can move into the inguinal canal through the weakened area of the lower abdominal wall, causing a hernia. Although girls do not have testicles, they do have an inguinal canal, so they can develop hernias in this area as well.

What is an inguinal hernia?
An inguinal hernia occurs when the membrane that separates the abdominal cavity that holds the intensities breaks open and allows protrusions into the groin region.
An inguinal hernia occurs when the membrane that separates the abdominal cavity that holds the intenstines breaks open and allows protrusions into the groin region. The intestines and other organs can drop into the groin cavity and cause pain and pressure. A hernia can occur in several different parts of the body. The definition of hernia is the protruding of an organ or a part of an organ through the wall that normally contains it. This can happen in the groin area, the abdominal wall, the bowels, the diaphram, the scrotal sac or even a disk in the vertebral bones. The most common hernia is an inguinal hernia in the groin area of men, but can also occur to women but less frequently. There are two types of inguinal hernias, congenital inguinal hernia and an inguinal hernia. bodyOffer(27175) An inguinal hernia can occur in both men and women. It happens later in life; anywhere in childhood to adulthood. Its occurrence is usually related to a weakness of the peritoneum which separates the abdominal cavity from the groin area. The peritoneum will stretch and rupture, usually from lifting something heavy or straining. Sometimes if there is great pressure in abdomen, as in pregnancy, the breakage will occur from within. When a hole occurs in the peritoneum the intestines or bowels can be pushed through the opening down into the groin. You will feel a soft lump; which may be painful or may not. Usually there is more pain if you stretch, cough, laugh, lift something heavy or strain yourself in any way. Go to the doctor if you suspect a hernia.

Questions and Answers about Hernias
What is a hernia? A hernia is a weakness or defect in the abdominal wall. It may be present from birth, or develop over a period of time. If the defect is large enough, abdominal contents such as the bowels, may protrude through the defect causing a lump or bulge felt by the patient. Hernias develop at certain sites which have a natural tendency to be weak; the groin, umbilicus (belly button), and previous surgical incisions. Why should hernias be repaired? Once a hernia has developed, it will tend to enlarge and cause discomfort. If a loop of bowel gets caught in the hernia, it may become obstructed or its blood supply may be cut off. This could then become a life-threatening situation. Since hernias can be repaired effectively and with minimal risk, most surgeons therefore recommend that hernias be repaired when diagnosed, unless there is serious medical problem which makes it too risky. How are hernias repaired? 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 Gore-Tex, 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. How does the laparoscopic method differ?
