A hernia is a protrusion of the tissues of the abdomen through a weak spot or an unhealed wound in the muscle layers of the abdomen and surrounding areas. Hernias are classified into different sub types based on the area in which they develop. Different types of hernias are:
- Incisional Hernia
- Inguinal Hernia
- Umbilical Hernia
- Femoral Hernia
Hernias, in most of the cases, don’t cause any complications but can cause discomfort and pain in some. In rare cases, a hernia can strangulate the intestinal tissues and deprive them of blood supply. This may lead to the formation of dead tissue, gangrene, and infection. If a hernia strangulates the intestinal tissue, surgery has to be performed on an emergency basis.
Hernia Repair Surgery
Weak spots or unhealed wounds of the abdominal muscles can give up to the pressure from the internal organs and let the organs protrude through them. Hernias can develop in people of all age groups. Most adults need surgery but in children, they will retract on their own.
Even though most hernias are harmless, some might cause intestinal strangulation and gangrene. Strangulation of the organ by hernias is a fatal complication if not treated on time. Strangulation is a medical emergency and surgery will be performed to remove the dead tissue or gangrene.
