re: 3SQ7M4YTQHNF I have problem with hernia by Dr M. K. Gupta - Oct 4th, 2012 2:11 pm
Dr M. K. Gupta
Hernia occurs when the inside layers of the abdominal wall weaken and then bulge or tear the layers. The inner lining of the abdomen pushes through the weakened area to form a balloon-like sac.
This can cause a loop of intestine or abdominal tissue to slip into the sac, causing severe pain and other potentially serious health problems.
Hernias usually occur either because of a natural weakness in the abdominal wall or from excessive strain on the abdominal wall such as strain from heavy lifting, substantial weight gain, persistent coughing, or difficulty with bowel movements or urination.
Eighty percent of all hernias are located near the groin.
Hernias might also be:
Found below the groin (femoral),
Through the navel (umbilical), and along a
Previous incision (incisional).
What are the symptoms of hernias?
A noticeable protrusion in the groin area or in the abdomen:
Feeling pain while lifting
A dull aching sensation
A vague feeling of fullness
Nausea and constipation
Laparoscopic surgery uses a thin, telescope-like instrument known as an endoscope that is inserted through a small incision at the umbilicus. Usually, this procedure is performed under general anesthesia. This requires an evaluation of your general state of health, including a history and physical exam, possibly including lab work and EKG.
You will not feel pain during this surgery. The endoscope is connected to a tiny video camera, smaller than a dime, which projects an "inside view" of the patient's body onto television screens in the operating room. The abdomen is inflated with CO2 to allow your doctor to view your internal structures.
The peritoneum is cut to expose the weakness in the abdominal wall. A mesh patch is attached to secure the weak area under the peritoneum. The peritoneum is then stapled or sutured closed. Following the procedure, the small abdominal incisions are closed with a stitch or two, or with surgical tape. Within a few months, the incision are barely visible.
What are the benefits of laparoscopic hernia surgery?
Three tiny scars rather than one large abdominal incision
Short hospital stay.
Reduced post-operative pain
Low hospital costs
Faster return to work
Shorter recovery time and earlier resumption of daily activities.
