  37. 37. Hernias
  38. 38. Inguinal herniae Hernia Numbers  25% of males (2% F) will develop a groin hernia  65% Indirect Inguinal herniae  55% on the right  31% Direct Inguinal Herniae  Although represent 80% of bilateral herniae  4% Femoral Herniae  More common in women 20 % of all groin herniae c/w 2% male. Causes  Congenital  Chronic Stress to area  Metabolic-Collagen-vasc Ds, Smoking
  39. 39. Hernia types Inguinal  Direct  Indirect  Pantaloon Femoral Also  Sliding herniae
  40. 40. Sliding Hernia A Hernia in which the peritoneal wall that forms part of the sac has an organ naturally adherent to it.  Eg. If an extraperitoneal organ (usually Bladder or colon) slides out with its adherent peritoneum through the hernia defect the organ itself becomes part of the wall of the sac. Non sliding hernia Must look out for this at the time of surgery because the organ is easily injured upon opening the sac. Can be direct or indirect. Sliding hernia
  41. 41. Inguinal herniae Clinically  Groin pain/discomfort  Dragging, worse during the day  Lump  Asymmetry-inguino-scrotal swelling  GI/GU obstruction  Incarceration/Irreducibility
  42. 42. Hernia examination
  43. 43. Direct vs indirect Direct  Diffuse bulge  Rarely into scrotum  Controlled only at superficial ring Indirect  Usually more defined  May extend into scrotum  Herniation/reduction more prominent  Controlled at deep ring.
  44. 44. Femoral vs inguinal Inguinal  Lie in/above groin crease  Appear above and medial to pubic tubercle.  Extend into scrotum Femoral  Lie below crease  Appear below and lateral to tubercle  Extend into thigh
  45. 45. Hernia Complications Incarceration Strangulation  Risk-Indirect and Femoral>>>Direct  Surgical emergency  Call the surgeon-don’t try and reduce.  Herniated Viscera is entrapped and infarcted.  Acute, tender, painful lump +/- SBO  Richters Hernia  Reduction en-masse Progressive growth=Natural Hx of herniae.
  46. 46. Hernia Management Fix it!  Eliminates pain  Eliminates Lump  Avoids hernia growth  Avoids risk of strangulation  Esp in indirect hernia  Straightforward surgery.
  47. 47. Inguinal Operations Previous  Bassini, McVay, Shouldice  Forget them Now  Lichtenstein tension free mesh repair.  Laproscopic repair.
  48. 48. Hernia operations Lichtenstein tension free mesh repair.  Developed in NY at the Lichtenstein Hernia clinic  Originally done as OP procedure under LA  Involves  Dissecting Inguinal canal and mobilising cord  Inverting/removing hernia sac  Reinforcing posterior inguinal wall with prolene mesh.
  49. 49. Open Hernia Repair
  50. 50. Hernia operations Lichtenstein tension free mesh repair.  Results  All can be done under LA  Widely adopted  Recurrence rate 1-2%-Lichtenstein
  51. 51. Hernia Operations Laparoscopic  TAPP  Trans abdominal Pre-peritoneal Patch  TEPP  Totally Extraperitoneal Pre-peritoneal Patch  Both place a Mesh patch over the hernial defect inside the abdominal muscle layer, outside the peritoneum.
  52. 52. Lap Hernia Repair
  53. 53. Hernia Operations Lap repairs  Multiple RCT’s C/W open repair.  Results equivalent for  Recurrence rate (? Better)  LoS  Better for  Post -op pain  Return to work  ?Chronic Groin pain  Worse for  OP time  Cost  Tend to be reserved for Recurrent or Bilateral repairs.
  54. 54. Hernia Operations Complications  Infection ~1.5%  Incl Mesh infection  Bleeding~1%  Hernia recurrence  Varies with technique, should be <2%  Nerve injury/Chronic groin discomfort 5-10%  Ischaemic orchitis/atrophy ~1-2%  Urinary retention 1-10%
  55. 55. Femoral Herniae 3 ways  High Approach  McEvedy-via the abdomen  Best for difficult or strangulated Herniae  Middle  Lothieson-via the Inguinal canal  Used occasionally for indeterminate herniae.  Low  Lockwood-via the upper thigh/groin  Best for small hernia and elective repairs
  56. 56. Summary Remember the anatomy  Lumps can arise from any tissue.  Understand the Hernia anatomy and the clinical management is easy Don’t kill anyone  Don’t miss Malignancy-Ing LN and scrotal lumps. Fix the hernias
