If an organ or tissue protrudes abnormally from the body cavity, it is called an inguinal hernia. By far the most common hernias develop in the abdomen. In this case, a weakness of the abdominal wall turns into a central hole through which an organ or tissue protrudes.
Hernias are often compared to tire failure, where a slit in the sidewall causes the tube to protrude outward. In this example, the inner tube is like the organ that breaks out through the opening in the side wall. It is this external pressure and the internal holding limit that enables the bulge to develop.
In addition to the hernias that can develop in the abdomen, there are a few more:
Internal hernia – hernia in or with an intra-abdominal structure
Spigelic hernia – hernia through the linea semilunaris
Slippery hernia – The hernia sac is partially formed by the wall of an intestine
Littre hernia – hernia with Meckel erticle
Obturator hernia – obturator hernia
Lumbar hernia / Petit hernia – hernia through Petit triangle
Grynfeltt hernia – hernia through the Grynfeltt-Lesshaft triangle
Although hernias are often the result of an inherited trait, there are several things you can do to prevent it. Preventing hernias is actually extremely easy, and the two most common areas in which people lose are: maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly. These two things help prevent the body from experiencing additional stress that it cannot withstand and help you in all areas to live a healthier and fuller life.
