  • Includes high ligation of the hernia sac plus narrowing the internal ring by approximating the surrounding muscular and aponeurotic layers on the medial side
  • The Shouldice repair emphasizes a multilayer imbricated repair of the posterior wall of the inguinal canal with a continuous running suture technique. The Shouldice repair is associated with a very low recurrence rate and a high degree of patient satisfaction.
  • The Bassini repair is performed by suturing the transversus abdominis and internal oblique musculoaponeurotic arches or conjoined tendon to the inguinal ligament. was the most popular type of repair done before the advent of tension-free repairs.
  • In the Lichtenstein repair, a piece of prosthetic nonabsorbable mesh is fashioned to fit the canal. A slit is cut into the distal, lateral edge of the mesh to accommodate the spermatic cord. The mesh is held in place with the use of a continuous monofilament nonabsorbable suture.
  • The “tension-free” mesh repair has been modified from the original Lichtenstein repair. Gilbert reported using a cone-shaped “plug” of polypropylene mesh that when inserted into the internal inguinal ring would deploy like an upside-down umbrella and occlude the hernia. This plug is sewn to the surrounding tissues and held in place by an additional overlying mesh patch. This so-called plug and patch repair, an extension of Lichtenstein’s original mesh repair, has become the most commonly performed primary anterior inguinal hernia repair.

    9. 11. Hernias of the Groin  Anatomy  The only structurally important layer of the groin of concern to hernia surgeon is the innermost aponeuroticofascial layer of the abdomen  transverse abdominal muscle  transverse aponeurosis  transversalis fascia
    10. 12. Hernias of the Groin  Anatomy  The transverse aponeurotico fascia at the upper border of the fascial sheath is known as:  Iliopubic Tract>> North American Surgeons  Bandolette of Thomson>>French Surgeons  Deep Crural Arch>>>English Surgeons
    11. 13. Hernias of the Groin Anatomy  This innermost aponeuroticofascial layer of transverse aponeurotic fascia becomes the inferior crus of the deep ring  The superior crus of the deep ring is formed by the transverse aponeurotic arch that insert on the pectineal line of the pubis (pectin pubis )
    12. 14. Hernias of the Groin  Anatomy  The portion of the tendon of the rectus abdominis that curves laterally to pectin pubis is known as HENLE’S ligament  The angle of entrance of the deep ring is ACUTE medially and OBTUSE laterally
    13. 15. Hernias of the Groin  Anatomy  The MEDIAL border of Deep ring= the transverse aponeurosis & transversalis fascia; fibrous, definable, and palpable is the margin the Surgeons repair during hernia operation  The LATERAL border of the Deep ring the transverse abdominal muscle is soft, elastic, muscular, & indistinct
    14. 16. Hernias of the Groin  Anatomy The cremasteric muscle arising from the internal oblique muscle embraces interior aspect of spermatic cord in the inguinal canal The cremasteric vessels arise from the inferior epigastric vessels and pass through posterior wall of the inguinal canal; these vessels are w/ the genital nerve that supplies the tunica of the testis and cremasteric muscle

    21. 24. Definitions  Hernia= protrusion of a viscus through an opening in the wall of the cavity in which it is contained.  Features  Clinically the important point in the definition is PROTRUSION , because without it diagnosis is essentially impossible.  Anatomically important features:  Hernial orifice= defect in innermost aponeurotic layer of abdomen  Hernial Sac = out-pouching of peritoneum
    22. 26. Hernias of the Groin Anatomy  FRUCHAUD’S Myopectineal Orifice  He emphasized that groin hernia begins within a single weak area bounded:  Superiorly- Internal oblique Muscle and Transverse Abdominal Muscle  Laterally- Iliopsoas Muscle  Medially- rectus muscle & sheath  Inferiorly- pectin pubis
    23. 28. Hernias of the Groin Anatomy  This bony muscular framework is:  Bridged and Bisected by the inguinal ligament  Traversed by the Spermatic Cord & Femoral Vessels  Sealed like a drum on its inner surface by the Transversalis Fascia
    24. 29. Hernias of the Groin  CLASSIFICATION Type I Indirect Inguinal Hernia  Internal inguinal ring is normal  Pediatric hernia Type II Indirect Inguinal Hernia  Internal inguinal ring dilated  Posterior inguinal wall intact  Inferior deep epigastric vessels not displaced
    25. 30. Hernias of the Groin  CLASSIFICATION Type III Posterior Wall Defects A. Direct Inguinal Hernia  Protrusion does not herniate thru internal (inguinal) abdominal ring The weakened transversalis fascia (post inguinal wall medial to inferior epigastric vessels) bulge outward in front of the mass.
    26. 31. Hernias of the Groin CLASSIFICATION Type III Posterior Wall Defects A. Direct Inguinal Hernia  All direct hernias, small or large, are type III A  Three Varieties:  Type 1 small defect in the medial aspect of Hesselbach’s triangle near pubic tubercle.  Type 11 is a Diverticular Hernia that protrudes thru an otherwise intact inguinal floor.  Type 111 is a large Direct inguinal Hernia that protrudes thru the entire floor of the Hesselbach’s triangle

    52. 59. Surgery for GROIN Hernias 1. Aim is to prevent peritoneal protrusion through myopectineal orifice 2. Restoration of the integrity of the myopectineal orifice based on 3. Fruchaud’s concept of Groin hernias:
    53. 60. Surgery for GROIN Hernias  Fruchaud’s concept of Groin hernias: a. Aponeurotic closure of the myopectineal orifice to the extent necessary b. Replacement of the defective transversalis fascia w/ synthetic prosthesis
    54. 61. Surgery for Groin Hernias  REPAIR OF MYOPECTINEAL orifice  Reconstruction of the Deep Ring  Contrary to the belief of some surgeons the ANATOMY of the deep ring is such that strangulation of the spermatic cord by reconstruction of the posterior wall of inguinal canal is virtually impossible
    55. 62. Treatment of Groin Hernias  Repair of the groin hernia could be:  Anterior Approach = thru a groin incision where structures in & around the inguinal canal must be divided to reach the aponeuroticofascial layer
    56. 63. Treatment of Groin Hernias  Repair of the groin hernia could be:  Posterior Approach Tension is avoided by using a mesh prosthesis to patch or plug the myopectineal orifice replacing transversalis fascia layer
