A study of clinical and surgical management of hernia
Author(s): Dr. Prashanth Kumar K
Abstract: Hernia is the protrusion of viscera outside the body cavities which it was destined to stay in. The hernias can also occur internally from displacement of viscera from one cavity to the other. Such displacements are called as the internal hernias. The hiatal hernias are the commonest examples of these. The symptoms can be vague initially and the patients can neglect these for a long time since the signs and symptoms would be less initially. But sudden dreaded complications will always be associated with these which should be looked into. This study puts in an effort to find the pattern for the clinical presentation and also most common treatment involved for such cases.
