What is an Inguinal / Crural Hernia?

A hernia is a weakness of the wall of the abdomen that causes organs or structures inside the abdomen to leak (herniate) and a "lump" appears. This lump can appear in different areas but the most frequent are the english, and the navel.

Nowadays, hernia operations are performed with techniques that allow a very fast recovery and with excellent aesthetic results.

How do I know if I have a hernia?

Normally we will notice a “lump” that increases in size and bothersome with effort, as we have said most often is that the lump appears in the groin or navel. Often the hernias increase in size over time, also increasing the risk of complications. If we have doubts the best thing is to consult with a specialist.

How is a hernia diagnosed?

Most of the time, a physical examination is sufficient, appreciating the lump or the weakened area. Sometimes, if doubts persist, an ultrasound may be necessary.

What types of hernias are there?

The most frequent by far are: inguinal, crural, umbilical and postincisional or eventrations.

Can a hernia get complicated?

Hernias may not produce bothersome symptoms, but when discomfort does appear, it may indicate a complication. Hernias can get complicated. The most frequent complication we have heard about is strangulation. A hernia is strangled when it engages or gets stuck in the eyelet through which it comes out and the contents inside (intestine, fat of the abdomen etc.) suffers from a lack of blood supply that results in a possible perforation, peritonitis etc..

How are hernias treated?

Once we know that we have a hernia the best treatment option is surgical repair, thus avoiding the risk of complications such as strangulation that can force an emergency surgery that always has more risk than a scheduled surgery. There are currently different techniques for operating hernias:

  • Previous operation with local anesthesia and sedation.
  • Minimally invasive operation by laparoscopy.

What are the advantages of both operations?

The previous operation was performed with local anesthesia and sedation, this favors that the patient can go home the same day of the operation.
The laparoscopic operation is performed under general anesthesia and has the advantages of a faster post-operative recovery with less discomfort and a better aesthetic result. It is especially indicated in hernias already operated previously that have reproduced, in sportsmen and in the bilateral hernias.
