Postoperative hernia symptoms
A lump or bulge protruding from the surgical incision
The clinical symptoms of a postoperative hernia are a noticeable bulge or protrusion at or very close to the site of a previously made surgical incision. Almost any previous abdominal surgery can lead to the development of a postoperative hernia in direct contact with the scar, for example, if an infection has prevented proper healing.
Reasons for incisional hernia
increased pressure in the abdomen due to chronic cough;
obstruction of the urinary tract due to problems with the prostate;
ascites (accumulation of fluid inside the abdominal cavity and pressure on the abdominal wall);
several previous sections in one region;
poor surgical technique.
Modern methods of treatment
Surgical options are either traditional open or laparoscopic surgery, and the choice of method depends on the size and condition of the patient's hernia, the patient, and the decision of the surgeon usually performing the operation. In any case, it is likely that the new incision will be supported by a net covering the weak points, rather than suturing, which is not so well suited for such a procedure.
Open surgery, if done well, reopens the original incision and then fixes the wound securely to avoid further damage.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive technique that uses surgical microscopes and microinstruments to place a supporting surgical mesh inside the abdominal cavity through small incisions near the original surgical wound.
