Hiatus Hernia

What is a hernia?:

What is a hernia? A hernia is an abnormal weakness or hole in an anatomical structure which allows something inside to protrude through. It is commonly used to describe a weakness in the abdominal wall . Hernias by themselves usually are harmless, but nearly all have a potential risk of having their blood supply cut off (becoming strangulated). If the blood supply is cut off at the hernia opening in the abdominal wall, it becomes a medical and surgical emergency.

Types of Hernias:

Types of Hernias Inguinal hernia: Makes up 75% of all abdominal wall hernias and occurring up to 25 times more often in men than women . Two types of inguinal hernias: indirect inguinal hernia and direct inguinal hernia . Indirect inguinal hernia follows pathway that testicles made during rebirth development. This pathway normally closes before birth but remains a possible place for a hernia. Sometimes the hernial sac may protrude into the scrotum. This type of hernia may occur at any age but becomes more common as people age.

Causes of hernias:

Causes of hernias Any condition that increases the pressure of the abdominal cavity may contribute to the formation or worsening of a hernia. Obesity Heavy lifting Coughing Straining during a bowel movement or urination Chronic ling disease Fluid in the abdominal cavity Hereditary

Signs and Symptoms:

Signs and Symptoms The signs and symptoms of a hernia can range from noticing a painless lump to the painful, tender, swollen protrusion of tissue that you are unable to push back into the abdomen—possibly a strangulated hernia. Asymptomatic reducible hernia New lump n the groin or other abdominal wall area May ache but is not tender when touched. Sometimes pain precedes the discovery of the lump.


Diagnosis If you have an obvious hernia, the doctor will not require any other tests If you have symptoms of a hernia the doctor may feel the area while increasing abdominal pressure (having you stand or cough). This action may make the hernia able to be felt.


Treatment Treatment of a hernia depends on whether it is reducible or irreducible and possibly strangulated. Reducible Can be treated with surgery but does not have to be. Irreducible All acutely irreducible hernias need emergency treatment because of the risk of strangulation. An attempt to push the hernia back can be made
