Hernia occurs when a part of an internal organ or a fatty tissue pushes through a weak spot in the neighboring muscles. Hernias occur due to a combination of reasons like pressure, weak spot in the muscle or fascia and unstable abdominal muscles. Occurrence of hernia may be triggered by lifting heavy objects with a bad posture, chronic diarrhea or constipation, obesity, and poor nutrition. The most common types of hernia are:
When an inguinal hernia occurs, the intestine or the bladder begins to protrude through the inguinal canal or the abdominal wall. This type of hernia is most common in men
In incisional hernia, the intestines begin to push out through site of a previous abdominal surgery and this occurs commonly after surgery in the elderly and overweight patients
During a femoral hernia, the intestine is pushed into the canal carrying the femoral artery. These commonly occur in pregnant women
In umbilical hernia, the intestines push through the abdomen near the navel. It occurs commonly in newborns and in women after multiple pregnancies
It occurs when the upper portion of the stomach pushes into the hiatus
Hernia is repaired by surgeries like open surgery and laparoscopic surgery.
