What is an inguinal hernia?
An inguinal hernia occurs when part of the abdominal viscera protrudes through a weak area between the groin muscles. It is a common condition that can appear at any age, being more common in men than in women.
An inguinal hernia produces a bulge in the groin that can be fixed or disappear depending on the position of the body.
What procedure is used in inguinal hernia surgery?
As in any surgical procedure, in inguinal hernia surgery, the specialist will assess the indication for hernia surgery based on its size and associated symptoms. The open surgical procedure makes an incision in the groin area that allows the reintroduction of the evisceration into the abdominal cavity. It is an intervention commonly practiced in general surgery that provides good results and a quick recovery.
