This study is designed to examine the effects on post operative pain after the use of a fixation device to secure a mesh in the abdomen to repair a hernia of the abdominal wall. The fixati...
Although mesh fixation has been associated to an increased incidence of nerve injury and involves increased operative costs, many surgeons feel that fixation is necessary to reduce the ris...
The purpose of the study is 1. To compare the recurrence rate of the laparoscopic total extra peritoneal inguinal hernia repair without fixation of the mesh to mesh fixation under ...
This prospective randomized trial is performed to analyze the post-operative pain (acute and chronic) after endoscopic TEP repair after bilateral inguinal hernia repair.
Prospective observational study with mesh fixation using FDA approved synthetic glue,glubran 2 and standard mesh fixation with stiches in primary inguinal hernia repair surgery. The invest...
Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has become a valid option for repair of an inguinal hernia. Due to there are several types of mesh fixation for laparoscopic repair of inguinal hernia. The study ai...
Developments in inguinal hernia surgery have substantially lowered recurrence rates, yet recurrences remain an important outcome parameter of inguinal hernia repair. The aim of this study was to analy...
Despite the frequency with which inguinal hernia repairs (IHR) are performed, the real-world comparative effectiveness of laparoscopic versus open repairs is not well established. We compared the rate...
An Amyand hernia is a rare disease where the appendix is found within an inguinal hernia sac. This rare entity is named after the French born English surgeon, Dr. Claudius Amyand. Inguinal hernias are...
Sonography of the male inguinal canal for hernia is a common request. There is debate about the accuracy and even need for sonographic assessment of inguinal hernia. A clear, concise method is present...
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.
The tunnel in the lower anterior ABDOMINAL WALL through which the SPERMATIC CORD, in the male; ROUND LIGAMENT, in the female; nerves; and vessels pass. Its internal end is at the deep inguinal ring and its external end is at the superficial inguinal ring.
A surgical device designed for retaining a hernia in a reduced state within the abdominal cavity.
