  • We summarize our experience with histologic examination of these specimens to establish benchmarks for the number of spermatic cord structures in inguinal hernia sacs from male children [19].
  • OBJECTIVE: To report the case of a round ligament cyst which, as the result of gonadotropin stimulation for IVF, simulated an incarcerated inguinal hernia [20].
  • They reported three patients with a syndrome characterized by short stature, microcephaly, global developmental delay, abnormalities of hands and feet, seizures, large anterior fontanelle, scrotal hypoplasia, micropenis, cryptorchism, urinary tract abnormalities, and inguinal hernia (Wiedemann syndrome) [21].
  • In addition, Insl3 expression causes inguinal hernia in females, suggesting that a combination of estrogen and Insl3 action disrupts proper development of the muscular and connective tissue structures of the abdomen [16].
  • Two Byzantine physicians, Aetius of Amida (6th century A.D.) and Paul of Aegina (7th century A.D.), described two techniques for confrontation of inguinal hernia, namely the surgical removal of the prolapsed peritoneum and the cauterization of the groin [22].
