WHAT IS HERNIA ?
A hernia is weakness or tear in the abdominal muscles which allow fatty tissue or an organ such
as the intestines to protrude through the weak area.
If the bulge flattens out when you lie down or push against it, you have reducible hernia. You are not in immediate danger, but a hernia should be evaluated by a physician. If the tissue protruding through the hernia is stuck and never flattens out, you have a non reducible hernia. This is often painful and prompt medical attention is required.
AN INNOVATIVE OPTION :
Three – dimensional Mesh Repair : A device (Prolene hernia system) has been designed to overcome many of the disadvantages of tension free hernia repair technique which is currently used primarily to repair direct and indirect inguinal hernias.
THIS CONSISTS OF THREE ATTACHED COMPONENTS :
An ‘underlay patch’ that provides for an effective posterior repair on the inside of the abdominal wall giving the benefits of laparoscopic repair.
A ‘connector’ similar to a plug, but smaller and flatter.
An ‘onlay patch’ that fits over the abdominal wall giving the benefits of open mesh repair.
ADVANTAGES OF 3D MESH (DUAL MESH) REPAIR :
As the device lies flat against the abdomen, it has virtually no chance of migrating like other devices.
Usually, a minimal number of stitches are needed to secure the device, reducing discomfort and the chance of nerve damage.
Most importantly the 3-dimensional mesh device provides the benefits of a strong posterior repair like a laparoscopic procedure.
Discharge within 24 hours and back to work from 3rd day after surgery.
