Irreducible indirect inguinal hernia containing uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes.
An indirect inguinal hernia containing the entire uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes is extremely rare in pediatrics. The present report describes the very rare case of a 1-month-old girl with an irreducible indirect inguinal hernia containing the entire uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes, and the successful surgical treatment of simple herniorraphy. We review the literature on this type of relationship between indirect inguinal hernia and hernial visceras of the uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes and discuss the clinical features of this complication. Furthermore, the possible cause of indirect inguinal hernia containing the uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes was explored.

Multiple reports have documented unsuspected inguinal hernias which result in difficulties during the colonoscopic examinations of patients. In most cases, the colonoscopy can be delayed until a surgi...
The Carolinas comfort scale (CCS) is an ideal tool for assessing patients' quality-of-life post hernia repair, but its use has been barely investigated preoperatively. The aim was to quantify preopera...
Debatable issues in the management of inguinal hernia in premature infants remain unresolved. This study reviews our experience in the management of inguinal hernia in premature infants.
Prospective data on risk factors and the incidence of inguinal hernia are sparse, especially in an elderly population. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of and risk factors for ingu...
This study was performed to evaluate the effect of Stoppa hernia repair on sexual function of the patients with bilateral inguinal hernia.
Some patients, specifically those with a diagnosed genetic mutation, will have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed without removal of the uterus in an attempt to prevent ovarian and ...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate patient quality-of-life (QOL) after inguinal hernia repair. "Carolinas Comfort Scale" (CCS) assessments will be held at regular intervals...
The purpose of this study is to assess the early outcomes when using the Biomerix Revive™ as a tension-free onlay patch, Lichtenstein-style, in patients who are candidates for primary, u...
Chronic inguinal neuralgia is one of the most important complications following inguinal hernia repair. It may even outweigh the benefit of the operation. Intraoperative neurectomy has be...
This investigation will be a double-armed, randomized (Blinded patients and Blinded examiner) prospective study designed to collect perioperative and postoperative data to compare the QOL ...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
All the organs involved in reproduction and the formation and release of URINE. It includes the kidneys, ureters, BLADDER; URETHRA, and the organs of reproduction - ovaries, UTERUS; FALLOPIAN TUBES; VAGINA; and CLITORIS in women and the testes; SEMINAL VESICLES; PROSTATE; seminal ducts; and PENIS in men.
Appendages of the UTERUS which include the FALLOPIAN TUBES, the OVARY, and the supporting ligaments of the uterus (BROAD LIGAMENT; ROUND LIGAMENT).
