Which hernias need to be treated surgically


Laparoscopic (Greek lapara – stomach, groin, scopeo – see, look) or endoscopic (Greek endon – inside, scopeo – see, look) surgical treatment of hernias is carried out with the help of special laparoscopic (endoscopic) equipment, which allows the surgeon to see everything from the inside of the surgical instrument – and through the smallest openings to perform a gentle operation.

Hernias in the areas of the navel, midline of the abdomen, groin, thigh, which cause physical limitations (discomfort, pain, restriction of movements, etc.) and (or) aesthetic defects unacceptable to humans, are subject to surgical treatment.

A modern surgical technique used to treat hernias through a minimally invasive approach. This technique allows operations to be performed using special tools and a video camera, which are inserted into the abdominal cavity through small cavities.

Laparoscopic herniology has numerous advantages compared to conventional open access. In particular, it is a lower risk of blood loss, a faster rehabilitation period and a lower intensity of pain after surgery. In addition, laparoscopic herniology is a very precise technique that allows the surgeon to see all the details of the procedure on a large screen, ensuring high accuracy in work.

In laparoscopic herniology, the surgeon can perform various types of operations to correct hernias, including removing the hernial protrusion and eliminating the causes of its formation. It is a safe and effective technique that allows the patient to quickly return to normal life after surgery.

    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).

    Preparation for laparoscopic operations

    On hernias includes general principles of preparation for surgical interventions: Get acquainted
    img img img img

    in the case of taking any drugs, inform the doctor about it and agree with him (it may be necessary to limit them or change the dose, regimen)

    for a few days before the operation, follow a gentle diet, water-drinking regime; if there is constipation, take laxatives, use enemas and do not drink alcoholic beverages – so that the body reacts more adequately and predictably to anesthesia and other drugs

    refrain from eating for 6–12 hours before the operation, and for 2–4 hours also do not drink, do not use chewing gum, do not smoke – to prevent stomach contents from entering the respiratory organs during anesthesia

    on the day of the operation, take a shower, cleanse the intestines with an enema – so that during anesthesia, due to the relaxation of the sphincters, feces do not come out involuntarily

    Immediately before the operation : Get acquainted
    img img

    removable objects (piercing jewelry, prostheses) should be removed from the oral cavity and face – so that during the operation they do not accidentally enter the respiratory organs or interfere with the surgical intervention

    remove other items (contact lenses, hearing aids, jewelry, etc.) – so that they do not accidentally injure the body and do not get spoiled

    cosmetic products (makeup, nail polish, artificial nails) should be removed from the body – to facilitate visual assessment of the body's condition and automated registration using medical equipment

    empty the bladder and, if necessary, the intestine – so that this does not happen involuntarily during anesthesia

    changing into special clothes, which are given in the clinic

    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 either brought to the operating room

      on a gurney or escorted on foot. In the airlock room, a medical cap and shoe covers are put on (to prevent microorganisms from entering the air of the operating room).

    • 2
      Operations related to combat

      trauma are performed by an operational team of a certain composition, taking into account the specifics of each operation.

    • 3
      The patient is placed on the operating table

      (depending on the specifics of the operation, the position of the body may differ), fixed to it with special straps.

    • 4
      The anesthetist's nurse

      performs a vein puncture on the hand, installs a catheter to administer the necessary drugs, installs electrodes on the body to monitor the electrical activity of the heart, puts a tonometer cuff on the shoulder, and a sensor to determine the oxygen content in the blood. All this is necessary for continuous monitoring of the body's condition during anesthesia and surgery.

    • 5
      The further course of the operation

      depends on the specific task, the part of the body on which the intervention is carried out, corresponds to the features of the selected surgical tactics, technique.



    Postoperative period and prevention of hernias

    After surgery, the patient wakes up in the ward for postoperative observation. If necessary, oxygen can be supplied through a thin tube to provide the body with a sufficient amount of oxygen. The nurse will carefully monitor the condition of the body and, if necessary, apply drugs agreed with the doctor.

    Before patient’s return home, the doctor will examine the areas where the intervention was performed, agree on the tactics of further rehabilitation, give additional advice on preventing the recurrence of hernias.

      What is hernioplasty?

      Hernioplasty (hernia surgery) – surgical treatment of hernias (from Latin hernia – hernia, plasticus – sculpting, forming). For this, laparoscopic surgery (hernia surgery) can be performed.

      How long does the hernia removal operation last?

      The duration of the hernioplasty operation is 30–60 minutes.

      Is there a guarantee for surgical treatment of a hernia?

      Despite the differing point of view about the conditional “ease” of surgical treatment of hernias (especially prophylactically, non-compacted ones), this is a full-fledged surgical intervention with all the risks, which are caused to a large extent by factors independent of the medical staff and the clinic. Therefore, the guarantee applies to implants and other medical consumables and equipment, the fair use of leading medical technologies, the involvement of highly qualified specialists and the implementation of the principles of good clinical practice.

      How to prepare for laparoscopic hernioplasty?

      Preparation for laparoscopic hernioplasty operations includes preliminary examination and consultation of the surgeon, comprehensive examination, consultation of related specialists (if necessary), etc. Immediately before the operation, the principles of preparation do not differ significantly from those generally accepted in surgery, since general herniology is an integral part of surgery.

      What are the possible complications after surgery?

      Possible complications after laparoscopic herniology operations include general surgical (bleeding and thrombosis, infectious-inflammatory conditions, etc.) and more specific to this field (postoperative defects, repeated hernias, etc.). Careful preparation for the operation, highly qualified and experienced medical staff, modern high-tech equipment and coordinated work of the medical team and other staff of the clinic minimize the risk of complications.

      What are the contraindications to the procedure?

      Contraindications to herniological operations are conditions, the severity of which critically increases the risks of surgical treatment, for example, infectious, mental, gastrointestinal, diseases, etc.
