Abstract

This chapter deals with all types of hernias. The importance of surgical anatomy for the inguinal hernia has been specially highlighted, in that how the shutter mechanism prevailing in the inguinal canal protects the anatomical defect of the inguinal canal has been discussed. The risk of recurrence of inguinal hernia could be reduced, if the operative technique for the repair of the inguinal hernia does not interfere with the shutter mechanism. All operative techniques for the repair of all types of hernias have been described methodically. It would help the trainee surgeon to understand the techniques and to gain confidence in surgical practice.
