What is a Hernia?
A hernia is bulging of an organ, intestine, or fatty tissue through an opening or weak site in the encompassing muscle or connective tissue. One indication of hernia is an external protrusion that is observed particularly when straining or bending down. In most cases, hernias are observed near the abdominal wall, but can also be found near the groin and belly button region.
Types of Hernias:
Based on anatomy, there are five types of hernias which occur commonly:
Inguinal (Groin) Hernia: in the inner groin
Femoral Hernia: in the upper thigh/outer groin
Ventral (Abdominal) Hernia: in the general abdominal/ventral wall
Umbilical Hernia: at the belly button
Hiatal Hernia: inside the abdomen, along the upper stomach/diaphragm
Inisional hernia is a subtype of ventral hernia that is caused by a surgical wound that hasn’t completely healed.
