What is Hernia?

A “break” (inguinal, thigh, umbilical, abdominal wall, scar or diaphragmatic fracture. “Hernia” - not a broken bone!) Is a gap in the abdominal wall muscles through which the peritoneum extends outwards like the fingers of a glove. The void can be congenital or acquired. Intestines can slip into the peritoneal protuberance and pinch. This situation can be life threatening.

It is therefore necessary to operationally close the gap that has arisen in good time (preferably planned).

Who we are

What type of hernia is most common in females?

In women, the inguinal canal contains the round ligament that gives support for the womb. This is the most common type of hernia, and affects men more often than women.

In an inguinal hernia, fatty tissue or a part of the intestine pokes into the groin at the top of the inner thigh

Diagnosis

Physical Examination

Before the treatment, the exact diagnosis is made by the specialist. First, the previous history is discussed and asked.

Dynamic Ultrasound

With a dynamic ultrasound examination, the precise location, size and nature of the hernia in the groin or abdominal wall can be determined.

Special Examination for Diaphragmatic Hernia

In the case of diaphragmatic hernias with severe heartburn, a special endoscopic examination with manometry (pressure measurement) and pH-metry (acid measurement) is carried out.

Treatment

At Promed, the treatments are appropriate to the stage and individually adapted (so-called "Tailored Approach").
