What is a Hernia?

A hernia occurs when the inside layers of the abdominal wall weaken then bulge or tear. The inner lining of the abdomen pushes through the weakened area to form a balloon-like sac. This, in turn, can cause a loop of intestine or abdominal tissue to slip into the sac, causing severe pain and other potentially serious health problems.

The weakened abdominal wall can be present at birth or may develop later in life. The most common site is the groin, but hernias can also form in other areas, such as the navel. If the lump can be gently pushed back through the abdominal wall, it is known as a reducible hernia. If the lump resists manual pressure, it is a non-reducible hernia, which can mean serious complications.

What are the Symptoms of Hernias?

Most people with hernias have a common set of signs and symptoms. Some of the symptoms are as follows;

  • An aching sensation on the abdomen or the groin that is more apparent when you are active, bending over or lifting things.
  • An obvious swelling beneath the skin of the abdomen or groin that is visible while standing up.
  • Most of the time the bulge can be pushed in or it goes back on its own when you lie down.
  • If the hernia becomes extremely painful and hard then it may be incarcerated or trapped. This means that the fat or loop of intestine is now stuck in the hernia and is in danger of becoming gangrenous. This is referred to as strangulation. If you suspect that your hernia maybe incarcerated or trapped, then you should seek medical help immediately.


Hernia risk factors

An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. The resulting bulge can be painful, especially when you cough, bend over or lift a heavy object. Risk factors for the development of a hernia include: smoking, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obesity, pregnancy, peritoneal dialysis, collagen vascular disease, and previous open appendectomy, among others.

Types of Hernia surgery in Iran

A hernia can occur anywhere in your abdomen (the part of your body between the chest and the hips). There are several types of hernia:

Inguinal Hernia - It occurs when part of the bowel pushes through the abdomen into the groin (the area at the front of the body where your thighs meet your abdomen). It is more common in men than in women. In this, the intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin. About 80% of hernias are inguinal hernia.

Femoral Hernia - It occurs when fatty tissues push through into the groin, at the top of the inner thigh and appear as a fixed lump. A femoral hernia occurs when the intestine enters the canal carrying the femoral artery into the upper thigh. Femoral hernias are most common in women, especially those who are pregnant or obese.

Incisional Hernia - It occurs when fatty tissue pushes through a surgical wound in the abdomen that has not fully healed. This type is most common in elderly or overweight people who are inactive after abdominal surgery.

Umbilical Hernia - It occurs when fatty tissue pushes through the abdomen near the navel or belly button. it appears as a round lump of fat pushing the belly button outward. This is one of the most common hernias. Common in newborns, it also commonly afflicts obese women or those who have had many children.

Hiatal Hernia - It occurs when part of your stomach pushes up into your chest by squeezing through an opening in the diaphragm.

Epigastric Hernia - It occurs when fatty tissue pushes through your abdomen, between your navel and the lower part of your sternum (breastbone).

Spigelian Hernia - It occurs when part of your bowel pushes through your abdomen at the side of your stomach muscle, below your navel.

Muscle Hernia - It occurs when part of your muscle pushes through your abdomen and can also occur in the muscles in your leg, often as the result of a sports injury.

How is a Hernia Repaired?

There are several different procedures that can be used for fixing any specific type of hernia. In the open surgical approach, following appropriate anesthesia and sterilization of the surgical site, an incision is made over the area of the hernia and carried down carefully through the sequential tissue layers. This is to separate away all the normal tissue and define the margins of the hole or weakness.

Once this has been achieved, the hole is then closed, usually by some combination of suture and a plastic mesh. When a repair is done by suture alone, the edges of the defect are pulled together, much like sewing a hole together in a piece of cloth. In order to provide a secure repair and avoid the stress on the adjacent tissue caused by pulling the hole closed, an alternative technique was developed which bridges the hole or weakness with a piece of plastic-like mesh or screen material. The mesh is a permanent material and, when sewn to the margins of the defect, it allows the body's normal healing process to incorporate it into the local structures. After the hernia repair is completed, the overlying tissues and skin are surgically closed, usually with absorbable sutures. More and more of hernia repairs are now being done using laparoscopic techniques.


Recovery Time After Hernia Surgery

Recovery time after surgery depends on the type of hernia you have and the type of procedure required. Patients who undergo minimally invasive surgery are usually able to go home the same day and are able to walk the night of the surgery. Some patients, especially those who have had abdominal wall reconstructions or component separations, may have to stay in the hospital for a few days.

Discomfort After Hernia Surgery

Discomfort is typically handled with over-the-counter medication, although some patients may require a combination of over-the-counter and opioid-based medication.

Follow-Up Appointments After Hernia Surgery

All patients need a follow-up appointment two weeks after surgery to ensure that their pain is well controlled and there are no infections. Patients with more complex procedures may have complex bandages or negative pressure dressings that need evaluation, and we need to ensure that any surgical drains are performing properly to avoid infection. Depending on the patient’s progress, a second follow-up appointment may be necessary.

Postoperative Restrictions

After surgery, most patients will be asked to avoid lifting anything heavier than 15 pounds for the first two weeks, though more complicated patients may have differing limitations. Different patients will have individual restrictions, but in general, you should be as active as your provider permits. If you have any questions or health concerns after your surgery, contact your provider right away.

    What is the preferred method to treat Hernia? Open surgery or Keyhole surgery? Which one is better to me please?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      Keyhole or Laparoscopic surgery involves less risk and less complications. This is because, unlike in open surgery, the size of the incision made in a laparoscopic surgery is smaller. While in an open surgery, the incision is the size of a palm of an adult hand(6-9 inches), in case of a laparoscopic surgery, each incision is the size of one to the rice grain (5-12 mm). The smaller surgical incision results in less pain, quicker recovery, reduced risk of surgical site infection and post-operative complications.
      Moreover, in case of laparoscopic surgery, a relatively larger mesh can be inserted into the patient’s body, which is not possible in an open surgery. This reduces the risk of recurrence of Hernia.

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      The most common location for hernias is the groin (or inguinal) area. There are several reasons for this tendency. First, there is a natural anatomical weakness in the groin region which results from incomplete muscle coverage. Second, the upright position of human posture results in a greater force that pushes toward the bottom of the abdomen, thereby increasing the stress on these weaker tissues. The combination of these factors over time breaks down the support tissues, enlarging any preexisting hole, or leads to a tear, resulting in a new hole.
      Several different types of hernia may occur, and frequently coexist, in the groin area. These include indirect, direct, and femoral hernias, which are defined by the location of the opening of the hernia from the abdomen to the groin. Another type of hernia, called a ventral hernia, occurs in the midline of the abdomen, usually above the navel (umbilicus). Hernias can also occur within the navel (umbilical hernia).
