Some children after the testes and spermatic cord are omitted from the abdomen into the scrotum, the entrance to the inguinal canal at the inguinal ring is not closed (this should occur shortly after birth) and in the abdominal wall are not sufficiently dense regions through which sometimes starts bulge gland or part of the small intestine.

Direct inguinal hernia.   The reason for this type of hernia is the gradual destruction of the connective tissue that age also leads to weakening of the muscles. Over time, these processes result in the abdominal wall formed small holes through which can slip in the groin part of the bowel or omentum. Typically, such a hernia develops slowly, resulting in prolonged, intense stress on the muscles.

  • Laparoscopic inguinal hernia in men is done using general anesthesia. The small hole in the abdominal cavity introduced a laparoscope - a tool to obtain an image of the hernia and surrounding tissue, and display it on the monitor. Looking at the screen, a surgeon with the tools that are introduced through the other hole, gently return the fragment protruding bowel or omentum into place, and then sews the hole in the abdominal wall hernia repair or maintain.

Patients who have had a laparoscopy, usually return to normal a little bit faster than those who underwent open surgery.

However, laparoscopy is not for everyone; for example, it is not indicated for patients who have previously suffered any pelvic surgery, as well as very large inguinal hernias.

Most men after any hernia operation experience general discomfort, pain, and require analgesics. Physical activity for a few weeks should be limited, although it is not recommended complete rest - usually advise patients to start slowly walking as soon as possible after treatment, but avoid excessive stress and, of course, lifting weights.
