  • Subcostal incision skinincisionshorter than deeper incision with extension along line of incision both medially and laterally. There is potential for hernia (ovals).Midline vertical incisionSuture perforations (circles) site for incisional hernias (curved arrow).Lower abdominal Pfannenstiel incision (bikini cut)Bikini cut is curvilinear cutaneous and subcutaneous incision (A), but vertical component of incision is between rectus abdominis muscles, with potential for incisional hernia (vertical rectangle).
  • Sonogram of inguinal region parallel and cranial to inguinal ligament Spermatic cord (C), external iliac artery (A), inferior epigastric artery (E), femoral vein (V), and superior pubic ramus (curved arrow).
  • Pre-Valsalva maneuver sonogramHernia not visible, external iliac artery (A), inferior epigastric artery (E), and superior pubic ramus (curved arrow).Post-Valsalva maneuver sonogram External iliac artery (A), inferior epigastric artery (E), dilated external iliac vein (V), superior pubic ramus (curved arrow), and indirect inguinal hernia (H) originating from lateral to external iliac artery (arrowhead) and traversing inguinal canal from lateral to medial. (Left = lateral)
  • Pre-Valsalva maneuver sonogram Hernia not visible, peritoneal fat stripe (straight arrows) medial to inferior epigastric artery (curved arrow).Post-Valsalva maneuver sonogramDirect inguinal hernia deforming peritoneal reflection (straight arrows) medial to inferior epigastric artery (curved arrow). Left is lateral, right is medial.
