All You Need To Know About Hernia

A hernia means something coming through. It most frequently occurs when an organ or internal tissue pokes through a hole or weakness in your abdominal muscle wall. In many cases, people have no or very few hernia symptoms. You may notice a swelling or lump in your stomach area or groin. Often you have no hernia pain. If your hernia causes sudden pain and especially if it can’t be pushed back in, you should seek urgent medical care. It may mean that your hernia is trapped or tightly pinched where it pokes through the muscle wall (obstruction) and in extreme cases it may cut off the blood supply to your intestines and tissues in your abdomen (strangulation). A hernia is not usually a serious condition but it will not go away without hernia treatment known as a hernia repair.

Hernia repair surgery is the world’s most common surgical procedure. Hernia surgery can help to relieve pain, return the hernia abdominal organs to their correct place and, strengthen the weak muscle area.

A hernia operation usually takes around an hour as a day case procedure. It can be performed by:

  • Open surgery – under local or general anaesthetic, an incision usually around 2.5 to 3 inches is made to your skin near your hernia and your surgeon will push your hernia back into your abdomen. The incision is then either stitched closed or much more commonly a mesh is placed over the hole and fixed using fine stitches. The mesh acts like a scaffold and your own tissue will grow through the mesh to reinforce the weakened area without putting tension on the surrounding tissues.
  • Keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery – under general anaesthetic, several smaller incisions are made to allow your surgeon to use a less invasive technique using various special instruments including a tiny telescopic camera to repair your hernia. A mesh may then be used to strengthen your abdominal wall.

If hernia surgery is recommended, your surgeon will advise on the most appropriate type of surgery based on the location and severity of your hernia.

Most hernias are found in the abdomen. Areas of weakness in the abdominal wall where hernias are commonly found include the groin, upper stomach, belly button and, where you have a surgical scar.

various types of hernia

The most frequently seen types of hernia include:

  • Inguinal hernias – the most common hernia, seen more in men, causes a bulge in your groin. The inguinal hernia appears through your inguinal canal, a narrow passage that blood vessels pass through in your abdominal wall and, may reach your scrotum.
  • Femoral hernias – also a bulge in your groin, relatively uncommon and seen more in women. The femoral hernia happens at the hole in your abdominal wall where the femoral artery and vein pass from the abdomen into your leg.
  • Hiatus hernias - occur in your upper chest area when part of your stomach pushes up into your chest by squeezing through a gap in your diaphragm called the hiatus.
  • Umbilical/periumbilical hernias – occur at the umbilicus, a natural weakness in your abdominal wall, when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel pokes through your abdomen near your naval.
  • Incisional hernia – occurs through a scar from past abdominal surgery as tissue pokes through the weak healed site in your abdominal wall.

Hernia surgery is a routine procedure, but as with all surgeries there are risks of complications. These may vary depending upon the exact hernia operation you have and your health. Your surgeon will discuss these with you in detail.

Often the greatest complication risk is a reoccurrence of the hernia. Other hernia surgery side effects include: build-up of seroma or a fluid-filled sac under the surface of the skin, inability or difficulty urinating, organ or tissue damage, wound infection and, rejection of the mesh.

Recovery time after hernia surgery is usually two to three weeks. Most patients will return to normal daily activities and go back to work within a week. You should not do any heavy lifting for at least six weeks. Your surgeon will talk to you about what you can and cannot do for your specific hernia operation.

You’ll have sixty days of post discharge outpatient care commencing the day you leave a we including a follow up with your surgeon to check on your hernia as part of your aftercare package.

3 D Hernia Surgery

The 3 D Mesh is placed using a very common open hernia procedure. The surgeon would make a 2 inch (5cm) incision above the hernia. As in all open procedure, they would dissect out the hernia sac . When the sac is free they would return it to the abdomen, and then with their finger would open a small space below the muscle to place the small flat disk. When the space is prepared, they would load the 3 D Mesh into the delivery device and "inject" it into the hernia hole. The flower will then spring open and fill the hernia hole. The rear disk would be placed and controlled and then the abdominal wall closed above the implant.
