Incisional hernia is also called ventral hernia. Incisional hernias occur in people who have had a previous abdominal surgery. They are also more likely to occur in people who are obese or pregnant.

Incisional hernias are caused by thinning or stretching of scar tissue that forms after surgery. This weakened scar tissue then creates a weakness in the abdominal wall. This type of hernia is often painless, but may become tender and can cause discomfort during any type of physical strain or when the intra-abdominal pressure rises, in cases such as, lifting or coughing.

Ventral Hernias

An Incisional hernia causes a bulge in the abdominal area. The bulge may disappear when the patient is lying down, and be more visible when he is standing up. A hernia can often be pushed gently back into place. This is called a reducible hernia. When a hernia cannot be pushed back into place, it means a piece of the organ has become trapped, or incarcerated.

Patients with Incisional (ventral) hernias can wear a special type of belt, called a truss. This helps support the hernia and keep it from bulging out. Patients should also avoid any activities that cause abdominal strain.

Most patients elect surgery to repair Incisional hernias and avoid the possibility of a strangulated hernia.

Open surgery: An incision is made in the groin, the Incisional hernia is removed or is pushed back into the abdomen, and the weakness, through which the hernia protruded, is repaired. The weakness is reinforced and a piece of mesh may also be stitched in place to strengthen the area.

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair: This is a recent method for repairing an incisional hernia in adults. In laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery, the surgeon inserts a thin, lighted scope through a small incision in the abdomen. Instruments to repair the incisional hernia are inserted through other abdominal incisions.

Low Cost Inguinal Hernia Repair

If U.S. and U.K. surgery charges are beyond your budget, you can opt for low cost inguinal hernia repair in countries like India, Mexico and Costa Rica. In these countries the inguinal hernia surgery is available for a fraction of the cost of that in the United States.

Even though the cost of hernia surgery in these countries is considerably lower, the operating standards are at par with the best hospitals in the United States and U.K.

Ventral Hernia Repair Abroad – Hospital Stay

Almost all ventral hernia repairs are performed as an outpatient procedure or may require a short overnight hospital stay. You will probably be discharged from the hospital the next day. Patients are regularly visited by the doctors and nursing care staff.
