Incisional or Ventral Hernia Repair--Bangalore

A hernia occurs when part of an organ(usually the bowel or intestine) protrudes through a weak point or tear in the thin muscular wall that holds the abdominal organs in place.An incisional hernia can develop in the scar tissue around any surgery performed in the abdominal area, from the breastbone down to the groin. 

An incisional hernia usually arises in the abdominal wall where a previous surgical incision was made. This results in a bulge or a tear in the area where the abdominal muscles have weakened. Incisional hernias can increase in size with time.

Incisional hernia repair is a surgical procedure performed to correct an incisional hernia.An incisional hernia, also called a ventral hernia,is a bulge or protrusion that occurs near or directly along a prior abdominal surgical incision.The surgical repair procedure is also known as incisional or ventral herniorrhaphy.Ventral hernia results from a weakness in the musculoaponeurotic layer of the anterior abdominal wall. Almost all type of ventral hernia can be repaired by minimal access surgical approach.

The factors that increase the risk of incisional hernia are conditions that increase strain on the abdominal wall, such as obesity, advanced age, malnutrition, poor metabolism,pregnancy, dialysis, excess fluid retention, and either infection or hematoma (bleeding under the skin) after a prior surgery.

The best surgical approach for Incisional hernia repair is laporoscopic incisional herniorrhaphy, which uses small incisions and a tube-like instrument with a camera attached to its tip.This camera acts as an eye for the doctors for performing an accurate surgery.This minimally invasive laporoscopic surgery reduces the hospital stay,also quicker recovery,reduced wound infection.

This treatment is available at Bangalore at an affordable rate.The treatments are carried out under the guidance of Dr K N Srikanth,the experienced and renowned

Inguinal Hernia Repair Bangalore


Hernia is a condition in which part of an organ is displaced and protrudes through the wall of the cavity containing it.There are three parts to a hernia-the orifice, the hernia sac, and the hernia's contents.In most cases a hernia will occur when the compartment which envelopes an organ receives increased pressure,this weakens the boundary.This may happen for several reasons, including Age,Pregnancy,Genetic propensity,Drastic weight loss,Excessive lifting.

Inguinal Hernia happens in the small opening between tissues or parts of an organ projecting into the pelvis from the internal inguinal ring.The inguinal ring is at the entrance to the inguinal canal.The inguinal canal is an oblique canal through the lower abdominal wall.An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue pushes through a weak spot in your groin muscle.This causes a bulge in the groin or scrotum.The bulge may hurt or burn.

Most inguinal hernias happen because an opening in the muscle wall does not close as it should before birth. That leaves a weak area in the belly muscle. Pressure on that area can cause tissue to push through and bulge out. A hernia can occur soon after birth or much later in life.If you are overweight or you do a lot of lifting, coughing, or straining, the chances of hernia is very high.Hernias are more common in men. A woman may get a hernia while she is pregnant because of the pressure on her belly wall.

The main symptom of an inguinal hernia is a bulge in the groin or scrotum. It often feels like a round lump. The bulge may form over a period of weeks or months or it may appear all of a sudden after you have been lifting heavy weights, coughing, bending, straining, or laughing. The hernia may be painful, but all are not painful,some hernias cause a bulge without pain.A hernia also may cause swelling and a feeling of heaviness, tugging, or burning in the area of the hernia.These symptoms may get better when you lie down.Sudden pain, nausea, and vomiting are signs that a part of your intestine may have become trapped in the hernia.
