Treatment of the hernia

The hernia means that I escape. As an escaping organ is often the bowel in the general digestive organ surgery, it is called the hernia. The organ which says for a long time, and escaped not to dissolve to leave becomes hard to be restored and causes a blood circulation disorder and may be necrotized, and an emergency surgery may be necessary. It is the following disease to be treated.
Navel (navel) hernia: It is so-called protruding navel.
Abdominal wall scar (it blows) hernia: It is a hernia to go out of a part of the past operation wound. The postoperative number of years does not matter.
Inner hernia (obturator foramen hernia): Because the bowels fall into a part in the abdominal cavity, it becomes ileus.
sokei hernia: Generally, I am called a hernia, and am recognized with inguinal part (from inferior belly swelling of the pubic region).
Thigh hernia: The thing in the stomach says a thing coming out to the femor front.

About sokei hernia, thigh hernia

■Through sokei ring in from outside sokei (indirectly) hernia stomachs, the small intestine comes out. Most of sokei hernia are this outside sokei hernia. It tends to be frequent in the physical right side. Spermatic cord is a woman, and uterus ligament appears from a stomach in the men from inner sokei ring. 
■The small intestine comes out directly without going along sokeio in the inner sokei (directly) hernia. There is fewer it than outside sokei hernia, but is frequent in an elderly person.
■The small intestine appears through a pipe called a certain femoral canal toward the foot a little than thigh hernia inguinal part. It is frequent in the woman (delivered one) after the middle-age.

 I stand up, and the root (inguinal part) of the foot swells out when I lay emphasis on a stomach, and, in the case of a man, there is the thing to reach to a scrotum with the big thing. The lump-formed swelling and stiffness lay a body and may disappear when they control it by hand. When the bowels appear and enter, as for the special symptoms such as a light pain or the pain that exchanges violent arm thrusts, and constipation gets up, and is strong, there are none. When I do not come back with jumping out, an emergency surgery is necessary for (kanton state).
 Natural things are seen a lot in children, but adult is caused by a thing becoming weak as an organization of the inguinal part gets old.
There is such the operation method
An inguinal part operation: I cut the place of the root of the foot open approximately 6-8cm and perform it. I am going to prevent a recurrence of the hernia by seaming muscle of the abdominal wall together, and blocking up the exit of the hernia after the method performed from old days tied up (hernia sac) with a bag of the hernia at the root. It is a difficult point after the operation by this method that a feeling of thrust of the root of the foot continues for a while. In addition, I get old, and muscle becomes weaker, and hernia is caused again. The operation using the artificial reinforcing structure which blocked up the exit of the hernia, and could reinforce the abdominal wall came to be carried out recently. As there is the reinforcement of artificial materials even if the abdominal wall becomes weak by this method, it becomes hard to have a postoperative hernia relapse rate. (less than 1% of relapse rates). The local anesthesia enables the operation as well as half of the body anesthesia and is over for a short time (less than one hour). In addition, there are few postoperative pains and the length of stay is short and finishes it and has the good point such as being able to already come back to the life.
Flow of the operation
Is careful before 1, an operation; with a drum: I inspect blood or the electrocardiogram. As I diagnose it to decide the treatment that accepted an each person's patient, I treat other diseases, and a patient drinking medicine, please report afterwards. In addition, eating and drinking are stopped, but please protect it from appointed time as this is to be concerned with the security of the operation. 2, anesthesia: As a general rule, I perform it by a method to anesthetize the half of the body called lumber anesthesia or the epidural. These methods only take the sense of the place operated on unlike the anesthesia of the whole body and do not influence consciousness of a patient too much. In addition, I may use the medicine that I am relaxed, and an operation is received in such an anesthesia.
3, it is an incision of the skin:  I cut hypogastric skin open around 6-8cm.
4, it is the processing of the hernia sac: I cut a hernia sac open after other organizations and share figures a little and return contents (the small intestine) in a stomach. Then, after having tied up a hernia sac at the root, I remove it surgically and return the beginning to a stomach.
5, it is reinforcement by the reinforcement mesh of the outskirts organization: I fit an artificial reinforcing structure in the place that became weak so that hernia does not come out again. The artificial reinforcing structure blocks up the exit of the hernia and covers the inside plane of the stomach and reinforces the organization which became weak. The reinforcing structure is made with artificial material told that a body does not have harm on a tender mesh-formed seat. It is a characteristic that there are few postoperative feeling of thrust and pain, recurrences.
