What is Hernia? Weakness in the abdominal muscles can lead to the condition known as hernia. It is basically the bulging out of fat, or abdominal organs such as the intestine which then occupies space under the surface of the skin. The opening resulting due to weak abdominal muscles through which the organs protrude is called the Hernia defect. Hernia can develop in both men and women, at any age.
Some of the major factors which may lead to hernia are as follows: -
If a person is affected by hernia, surgery is the only way to cure the condition as it doesn’t heal on its own. Moreover, immediate action is required as the condition may get worse with the increase in the size of the hernia.Mesh repair and 3D Mesh repair surgeries are innovative modern techniques to cure hernia at its best and reducing the rate of recurrence as well.Mesh repair surgery uses a synthetic mesh to cover the opening. Whereas the later one uses polypropylene mesh to cover the hernia defect (opening in the abdominal wall) from three sides. It is best used for treating a largely sized hernia and prevent it from recurring.
