What is inguinal hernia?

An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. The resulting bulge can be painful, especially when you cough, bend over or lift a heavy object. An inguinal hernia isn’t necessarily dangerous. It doesn’t improve on its own, however, and can lead to life-threatening complications. Your doctor is likely to recommend surgery to fix an inguinal hernia that’s painful or enlarging. Inguinal hernia repair is a common surgical procedure.


  1. Increased pressure within the abdomen
  2. A pre-existing weak spot in the abdominal wall
  3. Straining during bowel movements or urination
  4. Strenuous activity


Inguinal hernia signs and symptoms include:

  • A bulge in the area on either side of your pubic bone, which becomes more obvious when you’re upright, especially if you cough or strain
  • A burning or aching sensation at the bulge
  • Pain or discomfort in your groin, especially when bending over, coughing or lifting
  • A heavy or dragging sensation in your groin

Signs and symptoms in children

Inguinal hernias in newborns and children result from a weakness in the abdominal wall that’s present at birth. Sometimes the hernia will be visible only when an infant is crying, coughing or straining during a bowel movement. He or she might be irritable and have less appetite than usual. In an older child, a hernia is likely to be more apparent when the child coughs strains during a bowel movement or stands for a long period.

Signs of trouble

If you aren’t able to push the hernia in, the contents of the hernia may be trapped (incarcerated) in the abdominal wall. An incarcerated hernia can become strangulated, which cuts off the blood flow to the tissue that’s trapped. A strangulated hernia can be life-threatening if it isn’t treated.

Talk to your doctor about:

  1. When you can take your regular medications and whether you can take them before your surgery
  2. When you should stop eating or drinking the night before the surgery

Your treatment team may recommend that you bring several items to the hospital including:

  1. A list of your medications
  2. Eyeglasses, hearing aids or dentures
  3. Personal care items, such as a brush, comb, shaving equipment and toothbrush
  4. Loose fitting, comfortable clothing
  5. A copy of your advance directive or living will
  6. Items that may help you relax, such as portable music players or books
  7. Any prescribed medical devices or equipment

Before the Procedure

For most aortic valve repair and aortic valve replacement procedures, you’ll receive anesthetics so you won’t feel any pain, and you’ll be unconscious during the surgery. You’ll also be connected to a heart-lung bypass machine, which keeps blood moving through your body during the procedure.


Aortic valve repair

Aortic valve repair is usually performed through traditional open-heart surgery and opening of the chest bone (sternotomy). Doctors wire the bone back together after the procedure to prevent movement and aid in healing.

Aortic valve repair procedures may involve several different types of repair, including:

  1. Inserting tissue to patch holes or tears in the flaps (perforated cusps) that close off the valve
  2. Adding support at the base or roots of the valve
  3. Separating fused valve cusps
  4. Reshaping or removing tissue to allow the valve to close more tightly
  5. Tightening or reinforcing the ring around a valve (annulus) by implanting an artificial ring (annuloplasty)
  6. Aortic valves that can’t open fully due to aortic valve stenosis may be repaired with surgery or temporarily with a less invasive procedure called balloon valvuloplasty — which uses an approach called cardiac catheterization. You’re usually awake during cardiac catheterization.
  7. During balloon valvuloplasty, your doctor inserts a thin, hollow tube (catheter) in a blood vessel, usually in your groin, and threads it to your heart. The catheter has a balloon at its tip that can be inflated to help stretch the narrowed aortic valve and then deflated for removal.
  8. Balloon valvuloplasty is often used to treat infants and children with aortic valve stenosis. However, the valve tends to narrow again in adults who have had the procedure, so it’s usually only performed in adults who are too ill for surgery or who are waiting for a valve replacement. You may need additional procedures to treat the narrowed valve over time.
  9. Some replacement heart valves may begin to leak or not work as well over time. These issues can be fixed using surgery or a catheter procedure to perform aortic valve repair by inserting a plug or device to fix a leaking replacement heart valve.


  1. In this procedure, your doctor removes the aortic valve and replaces it with a mechanical valve or a valve made from cow, pig or human heart tissue (valve). Another type of biological tissue valve replacement that uses your own pulmonary valve is sometimes possible.
  2. Often, biological tissue valves eventually need to be replaced because they degenerate over time. If you have a mechanical valve, you’ll need to take blood-thinning medications for the rest of your life to prevent blood clots. Doctors will discuss with you the risks and benefits of each type of valve and discuss which valve may be appropriate for you.
  3. Aortic valve replacement surgery may be performed through traditional open-heart surgery or minimally invasive methods, which involve smaller incisions than those used in open-heart surgery. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is another type of minimally invasive aortic valve replacement that has a nonsurgical approach. It is also sometimes called transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). But minimally invasive aortic valve replacement is less common because not all situations are best addressed by this method of access to the damaged valve. When performed by experienced surgeons and centers, the results are similar to those with traditional open-heart surgery.
