Spigelian Hernia or also known sometimes as “Lateral ventral” hernia is an unconventional type of hernia that develops throughout the Spigelian fascia. While most types of hernia grow below the fatty layers of the human body, Spigelian hernia is different. This type of hernia grows in between the abdominal wall and the muscles. As it is deep under the layers of the human body, this type of hernia usually does not show any obvious symptoms and therefore remains undetected for long durations. 

While most of the hernias are situated at the fat layers of the patient’s body and therefore cause swelling that is noticeable, Spigelian hernia, on the other hand, is situated deep inside and therefore does not show any such symptom. This type of hernia is known as “interparietal hernia” and it develops inside the abdominal walls and muscles. This is why there is no swelling or bulges that could be witnessed externally. Also, the size of this kind of hernia is considerably very small and therefore leaves no chances to identify it externally. However, it can be identified if the patient pays careful attention. Spigelian hernia can cause constant abdominal discomfort and this is what will help you identify it.

A patient starts to feel some amount of pain in the place of hernia after a while. This pain is constant and may come and go in intervals. However, it is still a strong symptom to look out for. Initially, it may not hurt in the immediate area of hernia but after a while, the location becomes clearer as the hernia begins to hurt more specifically. These symptoms are usually for hernias that are small in size and are made up of small lumps of soft tissues. Another symptom of Spigelian hernia is that it causes disturbances in the bowel functioning of the person.

Due to the fact that Spigelian hernia has no as such obvious symptoms, it is hard to diagnose this. Therefore, the doctor needs to go through an extensive examination in order to confirm a diagnosis regarding Spigelian hernia. He/she will check the size of the abdomen and will examine it by touching it gently in order to know if there are any lumps or not. Furthermore, a confirmed diagnosis for Spigelian hernia can also be passed after obtaining the CT scan results.

Spigelian hernia is very consistent with strangulation. This means that it can cause the congestion and cause the blood supply to be cut. Like most other hernia types, Spigelia hernia is also operated using a laparoscopic procedure. Incisions are made at the location of the hernia to extract it out and misplaced tissues are placed in their appropriate positions. The abdominal wall that is damaged due to the hernia is fixed by the help of a surgical mesh. This is to avoid any further chances of the hernia returning.

The recovery depends solely on the type of surgical procedure used, the expertise of the physician, the willpower of the patient and the severity of the hernia. However, the recovery time is usually around two weeks and if the laparoscopic method is used, the chances for recovery are faster.

An Incisional Hernia is a result of weakness in the muscles of abdomen and is likely to occur after any abdominal surgery. When abdominal muscles go through weakness, then, the abdomen tissues are extended through them. Actually, the incision which is made at the time of surgery causes the Incisional Hernia. Hernia appears under the skin as a knot and can cause pain if touched. Do remember, if a person is having the problem of hernia in abdomen but has not gone through any abdominal surgery, then the hernia in not the Incisional hernia.

People at the risk of having Incisional hernia are:

  • Who have gone through any abdominal surgery
  • Pregnant women
  • Who lift heavy things after surgery
  • Who have gained weight after surgery
  • Who have gone through two surgeries in the same incision or have had wound infection

Feeling a lump or swelling in the abdominal part can lead you to the diagnosis of the Incisional hernia. What you have to do is get involved in activities which tend to increase the pressure on the abdominal. For instance, you can cough, sneeze or lift something heavy to detect if there is any change in that part of swelling or lump. If it is there while doing these activities and is hidden after that or when you simply lay down, then, there are more chances that it is an Incisional hernia.

If the Incisional hernia is small enough then it can be cured by wearing a garment that is similar to weight belt. This garment will help to cure the hernia by applying a constant pressure on it. On the contrary if the hernia is large and causes pain, then a surgery is recommended. Mainly there are three methods by which the Incisional hernia can be cured and these are:

  • Open surgery and stitching
  • Laparoscopic surgery or Keyhole surgery
  • Tension-free mesh

In the Open Surgery, a large incision is made where there is a hernia and then the bulge of peritoneum is pushed back through the incision. After that, the incision is closed by applying stitches on it. Normally, many stitches are placed to ensure that the joint will hold for the rest of patient’s life.

In the Laparoscopic Surgery, the hernia is repaired using a laparoscope. The surgeon will make small incisions in the abdominal wall which can be two to four in number. One is used for inserting the laparoscope and others for putting in the additional surgical instruments. The actual operating is accomplished by the instruments and space for these operations is made by inflating the abdominal cavity of patient with CO2. Then, mesh is taken from inside the abdomen to cover the hernia hole. For fixing the mesh, the muscle tissues are stapled.

The tension free method is similar to the laparoscopic surgery, with the difference that in the former one, only one incision is made through which the mesh is placed at the opening of hernia and incision is closed. There is no need to stitch the muscle tissues together in this approach.

On the contrary if the hernia is large and causes pain, then a surgery is recommended. Mainly there are three methods by which the Incisional hernia can be cured and these are:

  • Open surgery and stitching
  • Laparoscopic surgery or Keyhole surgery
  • Tension-free mesh

In the Open Surgery, a large incision is made where there is a hernia and then the bulge of peritoneum is pushed back through the incision. After that, the incision is closed by applying stitches on it. Normally, many stitches are placed to ensure that the joint will hold for the rest of patient’s life.

In the Laparoscopic Surgery, the hernia is repaired using a laparoscope. The surgeon will make small incisions in the abdominal wall which can be two to four in number. One is used for inserting the laparoscope and others for putting in the additional surgical instruments. The actual operating is accomplished by the instruments and space for these operations is made by inflating the abdominal cavity of patient with CO2. Then, mesh is taken from inside the abdomen to cover the hernia hole. For fixing the mesh, the muscle tissues are stapled.

The tension free method is similar to the laparoscopic surgery, with the difference that in the former one, only one incision is made through which the mesh is placed at the opening of hernia and incision is closed. There is no need to stitch the muscle tissues together in this approach.

An Incisional Hernia is a result of weakness in the muscles of abdomen and is likely to occur after any abdominal surgery. When abdominal muscles go through weakness, then, the abdomen tissues are extended through them. Actually, the incision which is made at the time of surgery causes the Incisional Hernia. Hernia appears under the skin as a knot and can cause pain if touched. Do remember, if a person is having the problem of hernia in abdomen but has not gone through any abdominal surgery, then the hernia in not the Incisional hernia.

People at the risk of having Incisional hernia are:

  • Who have gone through any abdominal surgery
  • Pregnant women
  • Who lift heavy things after surgery
  • Who have gained weight after surgery
  • Who have gone through two surgeries in the same incision or have had wound infection

Feeling a lump or swelling in the abdominal part can lead you to the diagnosis of the Incisional hernia. What you have to do is get involved in activities which tend to increase the pressure on the abdominal. For instance, you can cough, sneeze or lift something heavy to detect if there is any change in that part of swelling or lump. If it is there while doing these activities and is hidden after that or when you simply lay down, then, there are more chances that it is an Incisional hernia.

In the Open Surgery, a large incision is made where there is a hernia and then the bulge of peritoneum is pushed back through the incision. After that, the incision is closed by applying stitches on it. Normally, many stitches are placed to ensure that the joint will hold for the rest of patient’s life.

In the Laparoscopic Surgery, the hernia is repaired using a laparoscope. The surgeon will make small incisions in the abdominal wall which can be two to four in number. One is used for inserting the laparoscope and others for putting in the additional surgical instruments. The actual operating is accomplished by the instruments and space for these operations is made by inflating the abdominal cavity of patient with CO2. Then, mesh is taken from inside the abdomen to cover the hernia hole. For fixing the mesh, the muscle tissues are stapled.

The tension free method is similar to the laparoscopic surgery, with the difference that in the former one, only one incision is made through which the mesh is placed at the opening of hernia and incision is closed. There is no need to stitch the muscle tissues together in this approach.

An Incisional Hernia is a result of weakness in the muscles of abdomen and is likely to occur after any abdominal surgery. When abdominal muscles go through weakness, then, the abdomen tissues are extended through them. Actually, the incision which is made at the time of surgery causes the Incisional Hernia. Hernia appears under the skin as a knot and can cause pain if touched. Do remember, if a person is having the problem of hernia in abdomen but has not gone through any abdominal surgery, then the hernia in not the Incisional hernia.

People at the risk of having Incisional hernia are:

  • Who have gone through any abdominal surgery
  • Pregnant women
  • Who lift heavy things after surgery
  • Who have gained weight after surgery
  • Who have gone through two surgeries in the same incision or have had wound infection

Feeling a lump or swelling in the abdominal part can lead you to the diagnosis of the Incisional hernia. What you have to do is get involved in activities which tend to increase the pressure on the abdominal. For instance, you can cough, sneeze or lift something heavy to detect if there is any change in that part of swelling or lump. If it is there while doing these activities and is hidden after that or when you simply lay down, then, there are more chances that it is an Incisional hernia.
