What is Hernia?
A hernia is a disease develops as a result when the internal portion of an organ or tissue projects within a small area of tissue. The condition ends with a restricted bulge giving pain and the discomfort. Mostly this happens in the abdomen or groin area.
Types of Hernia
We treat the following types of hernias in our hospital:
• An inguinal hernia:
It was apparent in the groin and develops in men. This type of a hernia impairs the blood supply supporting the testicles and hence the prompt treatment is a must. In severe cases, the therapy demands the testicular tissue removal.
• Ventral hernia:
It is a bulging of tissues through an opening of abdominal wall muscles. This type of a hernia can develop at any location. It covers any part of the ventral surface of the human body. People with the inherent defects are at the high risk of developing ventral hernias.
Symptoms of Hernia
The hernia symptoms vary from person to person. The symptoms include a painless or pain-free lump, sore.
• The enlargement of tissues and that cannot be pushed back into the abdomen.
• Illness or fatigue
• Burning sensation, and pain
• Sharp or tearing pain while lifting a heavy-weight
• The feeling of saturation in the inguinal canal
• TAPP repair for an inguinal hernia:
It is a minimally invasive procedure requires general numbness. In this, a surgeon creates a small cut below the navel. Then inserts a needle through this incision and fills the abdomen with gas. It helps the surgeon to observe the internal organs. Then removes the needle out and penetrates a camera through the incision. Again prepares the two cuts near the navel to put the laparoscope inside. Cuts the peritoneum and then removes a hernia sac. Fix a synthetic mesh over the peritoneal opening and then close it with stitches.
• TEP repair:
The procedure requires general numbness. The surgeon creates small holes beneath the navel. Then the surgeon put the balloon in the peritoneal space and fill it with gas to separate the layers. Then the surgeon passes the camera and the operational tools via incisions. The surgeon opens the hernia sac, repair it and close it with an artificial net. Then uses sutures to close the incisions. The mesh used gets merged with the abdominal tissues.
• Intraperitoneal Onlay Mesh (IPOM):
It is the procedure, used to treat ventral hernias. In this process, the surgeon places mesh directly onto peritoneum by using laparoscopic cannulas. The method is quick, allows early discharge with less operative pain.
• Open Hernia Surgery
In this procedure the surgeon prepares the single long incision in the groin area. By using dual-sided mesh, the surgeon strengthens the hernia injury and the muscles nearby the hole. One layer of mesh (with the blue circles) to be placed beneath the flesh and the other layer is on the injured muscle. The method is appropriate for smaller hernias and repairs the damaged tissues from the inside and the outside.
