can be considered an impedance of normal development. w/c make up the majority of pediatric hernias. Congenital hernias. . rather than an acquired weakness Normal Course of development: The testes descend from the intraabdominal space into the scrotum in the 3rd trimester.   Inguinal hernias may be considered congenital or acquired.

  The descent is preceded by the gubernaculum and a diverticulum of peritoneum.. 36-40 wks: processus vaginalis closes. w/c protrudes through the inguinal canal and ultimately becomes the process vaginalis. eliminates the peritoneal opening at the internal inguinal ring. .

NOTE: processus vaginalis continues to close as the child ages. with most closing within the first few months of life. .  Failure of the peritoneum to close results in a ppv.


subcutaneously and slightly above the pubic tubercle. located medial to the inferior epigastric arteries. The canal courses down along the inguinal ligament to the external ring.[ . This results from a persistent process vaginalis. located approximately midway between the pubic symphysis and the anterior iliac spine. The inguinal canal begins in the intra-abdominal cavity at the internal inguinal ring. Contents of this hernia then follow the tract of the testicle down into the scrotal sac.follows the tract through the inguinal canal.

laterally by the inferior epigastric arteries. A direct inguinal hernia usually occurs due to a defect or weakness in the transversalis fascia area of the Hesselbach triangle. and medially by the conjoined tendon. The triangle is defined inferiorly by the inguinal ligament. .

  . Incarcerated hernia: An incarcerated hernia is no longer reducible. The vascular supply of the bowel is not compromised. either spontaneously or manually. however. Strangulated hernia: A strangulated hernia occurs when the vascular supply of the bowel is compromised secondary to incarceration of hernia contents. bowel obstruction is common. Reducible hernia: This term refers to the ability to return the contents of the hernia into the abdominal cavity.

70% of femoral hernia repairs are performed on female patients. Incidence of inguinal hernias in males has a bimodal distribution with peaks before 1 y. and then again after age 40. Aprrox.    Majority of abdominal wall hernias occur in the groin (75%) Of inguinal hernia repairs. 90% are performed in males and 10% in females.0. .

where the spermatic cord passes through a haitus in the transversalis fascia. 4 to 6 cm Anteroinferior portion of the pelvic basin Shaped like a cone.    Approx. it’s base is at the superolateral margin of the basin. it’s pex pointed inferomedially toward the symphysis pubis Begins intra-abdominally on the deep aspect of the abdominal wall. .



Boundaries:  Anterior: external oblique aponeurosis  Posterior: transversus abdominis and transversalis fascia  Superior: internal oblique muscle  Inferior: inguinal ligament .  The haitus is termed the deep or internal inguinal ring.

and two nerves it contains the pampiniform venous plexus anteriorly and the vas deferens posteriorly. with connective tissue and remnant of the processus vaginalis .  consists of three arteries. three veins.

  Inguinal ligament. iliopubic tract.lateral portion of the lacunar ligament that is fused to the periosteum of the pubic tubercle may include fibers from the transversus abdominus.is comprised of the inferior fibers of the external oblique aponeurosis. and rectus abdominus . internal oblique. The ligament stretches from the ASIS to the pubic tubercle Cooper’s ligament.

Iliopubic tract  often is confused with the inguinal ligament secondary to common origin and insertion points. .  forms on the deep side of the inferior margin of the transversus abdominus and transversalis fascia. Inguinal ligament  is on the superficial side of the musculoaponeurotic layer  The shelving edge of the inguinal ligament is a structure that more or less connects the iliopubic tract to the inguinal ligament.

many will use it only intermittently as it does not provide continuous control of the hernia and may actually lead to an increased rate of hernia incarceration. is aimed at alleviating symptoms related to the inguinal hernia.    . may also be worn. such as pain.  The definitive treatment of all hernias is surgical repair. however. an elastic belt or brief that aims to keep the hernia reduced. and protrusion of abdominal contents. which aids in self-reduction of the hernia. however. Simple maneuvers include assuming a recumbent position. A truss. pressure. its use does not prevent hernia progression or incarceration. A truss may provide relief in up to 65% of patients.

The figures were much higher for development of a strangulated femoral hernia at 3 months and 2 years. 22 and 45%.conservative management is applied to asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic inguinal hernias.8% at 3 months for an inguinal hernia. One study has calculated the cumulative probability of developing a strangulated hernia to be 2. and rising to 4.5% after 2 years. .
