Abdominal hernia - Definition


Definition


We talk about abdominal hernia when a part of an organ held within the peritoneum of the abdomen comes out of this protective sack. In most cases, this concerns a part of the intestines. An abdominal hernia can be caused by severe weight loss or repeated pregnancies, which weaken the peritoneal membrane. This type of hernia is characterized by pain triggered by walking or exercising, and can be palpated through the skin. Repeated activity, persistent cough, or problems affecting bowel movement can all aggravate an abdominal hernia. It is treated by surgery.
