Inguinal hernias are lumps of fat covering the intestines or intraabdominal organs through the abdominal wall in the groin area. Clinically, the patient has pain and a small tumor that appears when standing and disappears when lying down.
Risk factors to develop hernias include lifting heavy objects either for work or sports reasons, smoking, family history of hernia, peritoneal dialysis patients, birth defect, after appendicitis, and prostate problems, and patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm.
The indicated treatment is the placement of a mesh through laparoscopic technique. The surgery is an outpatient procedure (does not warrant hospitalization) in which small, almost imperceptible incisions in the abdomen are performed, significantly reducing the risk of infection, bruising, and rapid incorporation into daily activities is achieved within less than 15 days and athletes can begin lifting weight within 15 and 21 days.
