Which hernias need to be treated surgically


Laparoscopic (from the Greek “lapara” – meaning stomach or groin, and “scopeo” – meaning see or look) or endoscopic (from the Greek “endon” – meaning inside, and “scopeo” – meaning see or look) techniques are employed for surgical hernia treatment. These methods involve specialized laparoscopic (endoscopic) equipment, enabling surgeons to gain an internal view through surgical instruments and perform delicate procedures through small openings.

Hernias occurring around the navel, midline of the abdomen, groin, and thigh that result in physical discomfort, pain, restricted movements, or aesthetically undesirable appearances are eligible for surgical intervention.

Modern hernia treatment employs minimally invasive approaches. This approach employs specialized tools and a video camera inserted into the abdominal cavity through small incisions.

Laparoscopic hernioplasty offers several advantages over conventional open surgery. Notably, it entails a reduced risk of blood loss, quicker recovery periods, and diminished postoperative pain. Moreover, laparoscopic hernioplasty is a precise technique enabling surgeons to view procedure details on a large screen, ensuring meticulous accuracy.

During laparoscopic hernioplasty, surgeons can execute diverse procedures to correct hernias, encompassing hernial protrusion removal and addressing underlying causes. This method proves safe and effective, facilitating rapid postoperative return to normal activities.

    What is the danger of hernias

    The main danger of hernias is that if they are strangulated, life-threatening conditions may develop, as blood circulation is disturbed in the compressed contents of the hernial sac, tissues die, inflammation of the peritoneum and internal organs, intoxication develop.

    • The indication for planned hernioplasty is the presence of any hernia.
    • Emergency (urgent) surgical treatment of hernias is indicated in the case of hernia compression (strangulated, or restrained, hernia).

    Diagnostic laparoscopy in surgery

    Preparation for laparoscopic hernioplastic procedures follows the general principles of preoperative readiness: Get acquainted
    img img

    Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking and follow their guidance (dosage adjustments or restrictions might be necessary).

    Adopt a light diet and proper water intake in the days leading up to the surgery. In the presence of constipation, use laxatives and enemas, and avoid alcohol consumption. This ensures a more controlled reaction to anesthesia and other medications.

    Abstain from eating for 6–12 hours before surgery, and avoid drinking, chewing gum, or smoking for 2–4 hours prior. This helps prevent the regurgitation of stomach contents into the respiratory system during anesthesia.

    On the surgery day, take a shower and cleanse your intestines with an enema. This helps prevent involuntary bowel movements during anesthesia.

    Just before surgery:

    - remove removable items such as piercing jewelry and prosthetics from the oral and facial areas to prevent accidental entry into the respiratory system or interference with the surgical procedure;
    - remove other items like contact lenses, hearing aids, and jewelry to prevent unintentional harm or damage;
    - eliminate cosmetic products like makeup, nail polish, and artificial nails from your body to aid visual assessment and automated medical equipment registration;
    - empty your bladder and, if necessary, your bowels, to avoid involuntary actions during anesthesia;
    - change into the provided specialized clothing at the clinic.

    In addition, other preparatory measures may be carried out taking into account the individual characteristics of the organism and the specifics of the surgical intervention



    The main stages:

    img img
    • 1
      The patient is transported either to the operating room

      on a gurney or accompanied on foot. Upon entering the airlock room, the patient is provided with a medical cap and shoe covers to prevent the introduction of microorganisms into the operating room environment.

    • 2
      The surgical procedures are executed by

      a specialized surgical team tailored to the unique requirements of each operation.

    • 3
      The patient is positioned

      on the operating table, with the specific orientation dependent on the nature of the procedure being performed.

    • 4
      The anesthetist's nurse initiates a

      vein puncture in the patient's hand, establishing a catheter for medication administration. Electrodes are placed on the patient's body to monitor cardiac electrical activity. Additionally, a tonometer cuff is positioned on the patient's shoulder, and an oxygen saturation sensor is attached. These measures enable continuous monitoring of the patient's condition throughout the anesthesia and surgical procedures.

    • 5
      Subsequent stages of the operation

      are contingent upon the specific objectives, the targeted area of the body, and are aligned with the chosen surgical tactics and technique.



    Postoperative period, rehabilitation and prevention of hernias

    Following the surgery, the patient awakens in the postoperative observation ward. If required, oxygen can be administered through a slender tube to ensure an adequate oxygen supply to the body. The nurse will diligently monitor the patient’s condition and, if necessary, administer medications as agreed upon with the doctor.

    Before the patient is ready to return home, the doctor will assess the areas where the intervention took place. Additionally, the doctor will collaborate with the patient to establish a strategy for ongoing rehabilitation and provide further guidance aimed at preventing the recurrence of hernias.

      What is hernioplasty?

      Hernioplasty, also known as hernia surgery, involves the surgical treatment of hernias (derived from Latin hernia – “protruded viscus,” and plasticus – “sculpting” or “forming”). This procedure can also be performed using laparoscopic surgery techniques.

      Duration of Hernia Removal Surgery

      The duration of a hernioplasty operation typically ranges from 30 to 60 minutes.
      Guarantee for Surgical Hernia Treatment.

      While there may be differing viewpoints on the perceived “simplicity” of hernia surgery, especially for non-complicated cases, it’s important to note that this is a comprehensive surgical procedure involving inherent risks. These risks are often influenced by factors beyond the control of the medical staff and the clinic. The guarantee, in this context, pertains to implants, medical consumables, equipment, appropriate utilization of advanced medical technologies, involvement of highly skilled specialists, and adherence to principles of good clinical practice.

      Preparation for Laparoscopic Hernioplasty

      Preparation for laparoscopic hernioplasty operations encompasses preliminary examination and consultation with the surgeon, comprehensive evaluations, and consultations with relevant specialists as needed. Immediate preoperative preparation aligns closely with standard surgical practices, as general herniology forms an integral aspect of surgical procedures.

      Possible Complications after Surgery

      Potential complications following laparoscopic herniology operations encompass general surgical concerns (bleeding, thrombosis, infectious-inflammatory conditions, etc.), as well as those more specific to this field (postoperative defects, recurrent hernias, etc.). Diligent preoperative preparation, the expertise of highly skilled medical professionals, utilization of modern advanced equipment, and cohesive teamwork among medical personnel within the clinic collectively minimize the risk of complications.

      Contraindications for the Procedure

      Contraindications for hernioplastic operations encompass conditions in which the severity significantly elevates the inherent risks of surgical treatment. Examples include infectious, mental, and gastrointestinal diseases, among others.
