PEDIATRIC HERNIA SURGERY

Inguinal hernia (IH) is a defect in lower abdominal wall, which mostly involves bowel loops descending from abdomen to groin.
It is one of the most frequently seen conditions in pediatric surgical units, with a male predominance.
The condition is associated with an increased risk of obstruction and incarceration of an IH. Incarceration of IH can have dreadful consequences like testicular atrophy/gangrene, intestinal obstruction, gut gangrene, sepsis and death.
