Abstract

Hernia is defined as an abnormal protrusion of a viscous or a part of a viscous through an opening, artificial or natural with a sac, covering it. Inguinal hernia is the most common hernia (73%) because the muscular anatomy in the inguinal region is weak and also due to the presence of natural weakness like deep ring and cord structures. There are two types of inguinal hernia in which Direct hernia is one which occurs through the posterior wall of the inguinal canal through 'Hesselbach 's triangle'. Acharya Sushruta has also beautifully described about its Nidana & Chikitsa under group of diseases which originates in the inguinal region viz, Vruddhi-Upadamsa-Slipada Nidana & Chikitsa. There are 7 types of Vruddhi Rogas among which Antravruddhi can be correlated to Inguinal hernia and Mutravruddhi to Hydrocele, even though originated from the aggravated Vayu, they are named due to involvement of organs or matters. Here we are reporting a case of direct inguinal hernia which was treated surgically.
