A direct inguinal hernia comes out directly forward through posterior wall of inguinal canal.  When ? This occurs when a portion of the intestine protrudes through a weakness in the abdominal muscles along the wall of the inguinal canal.
  8. 8. 2- Indirect Inguinal hernia :  who ? Is most common hernia of all especially in young children.  where ? An indirect hernia travels down the canal on the outer (Lateral & anterior) side of spermatic cord.  When ?

The weak area often is reinforced and supported with a synthetic mesh (hernioplasty).  After the surgery, four to six weeks before you're fully able to resume your normal activities
