The hernia has three parts: the orifice through which it herniates, the hernial sac, and its contents. A hernia may be likened to a failure in the sidewall of a pneumatic tire . The tire's inner tube behaves like the organ and the side wall like the body cavity wall providing the restraint. A weakness in the sidewall allows a bulge to develop, which can become a split, allowing the inner tube to protrude, and leading to the eventual failure of the tire.

    Hernia Overview
    A hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity bulge out of the area where they are normally contained. These contents, usually portions of intestine or abdominal fatty tissue, are enclosed in the thin membrane that naturally lines the inside of the cavity. Although the term hernia can be used for bulges in other areas, it most often is used to describe hernias of the lower torso (abdominal wall hernias). Hernias by themselves may be asymptomatic , but nearly all have a potential risk of having their blood supply cut off (becoming strangulated). If the hernia sac contents have their blood supply cut off at the hernia opening in the abdominal wall, it becomes a medical and surgical emergency. Different types of abdominal wall hernias include the following:
    • Inguinal (groin) hernia: Making up 75% of all abdominal wall hernias and occurring up to 25 times more often in men than women, these hernias are divided into two different types, direct and indirect. Both occur in the groin area above where the skin crease at the top of the

How Do People Get Hernias?
It might take a long time for a hernia to develop or it might develop suddenly. Hernias are caused by a combination of muscle weakness and strain, although the cause of the weakness and the type of strain may vary. Hernias are actually more common in babies and toddlers. And most teens who are diagnosed with a hernia actually have had a weakness of the muscles or other abdominal tissues from birth (called a congenital defect ). In these cases, straining your muscles doesn't cause the hernia; it only makes the hernia more apparent (and painful!).

Inguinal hernia
Not necessarily dangerous in themselves, inguinal hernias can lead to life-threatening complications. For this reason, your doctor is likely to recommend surgical repair of a hernia that's painful or becoming larger. The good news is that it's not the same hernia operation your father may have had with a large abdominal incision, a long hospital stay and weeks of immobility. Instead, many inguinal hernias now can be successfully repaired with a technique that uses several small incisions, leading to a faster, less painful recovery. NEXT: Signs and symptoms

NAHI Philosophy:
The Institute's purpose is to provide excellence in patient hernia repair at a minimal expense to the insurance carrier and the patient. This philosophy evolved through 28 years of experience and success utilizing specialized polypropylene mesh. Our friendly rapport with our patients and with insurance companies has allowed us to grow to become a center of excellence in hernia repair.
From one center, we have expanded to multiple locations throughout California. We have enlarged our staff by selecting Board Certified Surgeons with interest in the advance of hernia repair techniques. Working with local outpatient centers and hospitals, these surgeons were trained, observed by N.A.H.I. staff, and then qualified to join the Institute. Our present hernia repair has evolved over many years into a straight forward outpatient mesh reinforced herniorrhaphy.
Both general and local anesthesia can be used depending on the patient's health and preference. The patient may return to modified activity within 7 to 10 days and to normal and customary activity within 14 to 24 days. The insurance company quoted recurrence rate of 10% to 12% stimulated our efforts in combining the Shouldice technique with polypropylene mesh, thereby reducing our recurrence rate to less than 1/2%. We have also consolidated all costs of a hernia repair into one bill issued with a Lifetime Warranty for primary repairs.

Inguinal Hernia
A hernia is a condition in which part of the intestine bulges through a weak area in muscles in the abdomen. An inguinal hernia occurs in the groin (the area between the abdomen and thigh). It is called "inguinal" because the intestines push through a weak spot in the inguinal canal, which is a triangle-shaped opening between layers of abdominal muscle near the groin. Obesity, pregnancy, heavy lifting, and straining to pass stool can cause the intestine to push against the inguinal canal. Symptoms of inguinal hernia may include a lump in the groin near the thigh; pain in the groin; and, in severe cases, partial or complete blockage of the intestine. The doctor diagnoses hernia by doing a physical exam and by taking x rays and blood tests to check for blockage in the intestine. The main treatment for inguinal hernia is surgery to repair the opening in the muscle wall. This surgery is called herniorrhaphy. Sometimes the weak area is reinforced with steel mesh or wire. This operation is called hernioplasty. If the protruding intestine becomes twisted or traps stool, part of the intestine might need to be removed. This surgery is called bowel resection. (Bowel is another word for intestine.)

  • An abdominal wall hernia causes a noticeable bulging but little discomfort. The diagnosis is made by physical examination and sometimes ultrasonography. Treatment involves surgery to repair the hernia.
Abdominal hernias are very common, particularly among men. There are about 700,000 hernia operations each year in the United States. Hernias are usually named for the area in which they occur. The abdominal wall is thick and tough in most places, so hernias usually occur in an area of weakness where a previous opening has closed. Heavy lifting or straining may make a hernia more obvious but does not cause a hernia to form.

      What is a sports hernia?
      By Jonathan Cluett, M.D. , Updated: April 14, 2008 Health's Disease and Condition content is reviewed by Kate Grossman, MD A sports hernia occurs when there is a weakening of the muscles or tendons of the lower abdominal wall. This part of the abdomen is the same region where an inguinal hernia occurs, called the inguinal canal. When an inguinal hernia occurs there is sufficient weakening of the abdominal wall to allow a pouch, the hernia, to be felt. In the case of a sports hernia, the problem is due to a weakening in the same abdominal wall muscles, but there is no palpable hernia. What is the inguinal canal?

Complete information on hernia location and hernia types INGUINAL HERNIAS I NGUINAL or 'groin' hernias are by far the most common site for hernias to develop in adults, and are second only to Umbilical Hernias in infants and children. While a bit more common in men, they do occur in women as well. These hernias will develop as the result of a weakness, tear, gap or opening in the muscle wall of the lower abdomen or groin, in a region called the Myopectineal Orifice . As a result, the contents of the abdomen, such as intestine, may protrude through the opening creating a pain and a bulge. The pain and bulge may be constant, or intermittent in duration. Inguinal Hernias are located in the lower abdomen (right side, left side or both), just above the leg crease, near or adjacent to the pubic area. Inguinal Hernias can occur on both sides ('Bilateral') in about 8-10% of patients.

What is a hernia? A hernia occurs when a section of intestine protrudes through a weakness in the abdominal muscles. A soft bulge is seen underneath the skin where the hernia has occurred. In children, a hernia usually occurs in one of two places:
    • around the belly-button in the groin area
    A hernia that occurs in the belly-button area is called an umbilical hernia. A hernia that occurs in the groin area is called an inguinal hernia. What causes a hernia? A hernia can develop in the first few months after the baby is born because of a weakness in the muscles of the abdomen. Inguinal and umbilical hernias happen for slightly different reasons.
