|Abdominal hernias: from the outside to the inside|
Abdominal hernias are among the most common surgical problems, and a leading cause of abdominal pain and intestinal obstruction. The main types of abdominal hernias are external hernias, which involve protrusion of abdominal contents through a defect in the abdominal wall; internal hernias, with protrusion of viscera through the peritoneum, mesentery or a compartment in the abdominal cavity; and diaphragmatic hernias, involving protrusion of abdominal contents into the chest.
