A hernia is basically a defect or a hole through which abdominal contents come out of the abdominal wall and stay outside in a sac between the skin and abdominal muscles. This defect or hole can be of any size ranging from 1 cm to a very large size going into several centimeters. A small defect of one to six CMS does not pose a major problem in closing it with sutures. A defect larger than six to eight centimeters poses many problems like a large number of contents remaining outside the abdominal cavity, loss of support to spine, and above all, difficulty in closing the defect by simple suture technique: The closure of defect needs special techniques of closure commonly known as a Component Separation technique.

Thus the repair of Hernia with a wide/large defect becomes a special problem and is tackled by surgeons trained and equipped to deal with it by using advanced surgical techniques. (Read More..)
