Paediatric Hernia

 

Some babies are born with a persistent connection between the abdomen and the groin. This is much commoner in boys and commoner on the right side, but can also occur in girls.This persistent connection can allow a loop of bowel from the abdomen to push down into the groin, particularly when straining or crying, and this will be noticed as a lump in the groin area. Often the lump is noticed in the first few weeks of life, but sometimes may only become obvious in later years when the child is more active.

 

If a hernia is confirmed on examination by one of the general paediatric surgeons at Warwickshire Surgical Partners, then surgical correction will usually be recommended to prevent the small but important risk of a loop of bowel becoming stuck in the hernia. Surgical correction is performed as a small day-case procedure under general anaesthetic, where the persistent connection is tied off in the groin through a small incision. Your surgeon will be able to give you full details of this procedure at consultation.
