What Is a Ventral Hernia?

Ventral hernias are a common type of abdominal hernia that frequently occurs near the midline of the abdominal wall. Although it’s more common to occur along the midline of the abdomen, they can happen at any location on the abdominal wall. A type of ventral hernia that occurs near or beneath the navel is an umbilical hernia. Incisional hernias are ventral hernias that occur at the site of a previous surgery of the abdomen.

Normally, ventral hernias appear as a bulge in the abdomen that gets larger over time. Most hernias of this type are reducible because the contents can be pushed back into the abdomen temporarily. Surgery is required to treat ventral hernias by reducing the contents of the hernia and to shut and reinforce the opening in the abdomen.

Common symptoms of a ventral hernia include:

  • Lump in the abdomen that causes pain
  • Bulge on the abdomen
  • Growth of the lump when pressure in the abdomen is increased
  • Redness of skin on the abdominal lump

Common symptoms of a ventral hernia

Life-threatening symptoms can include:

  • Increased swelling with bright red skin
  • Inability to have bowel movements
  • High fever
  • Not able to produce urine
  • Severe pain in the abdomen
  • Serious nausea and vomiting

If you have any of these life-threatening symptoms, seek medical care immediately.

What causes ventral hernias?

A ventral hernia may grow over time or be congenital. Hernias present at birth generally result from a faulty closure of parts of the abdominal wall. Umbilical hernias are mostly congenital. In the weakened areas of the abdominal wall is where most ventral hernias develop.

What are the treatments for ventral hernia?

Ventral hernia treatment starts with a personalized evaluation with Dr. Dasari. Once the hernia has been diagnosed, the only way to fix it is through surgery. Surgery is commonly performed once the ventral hernia has begun to cause discomfort or increased in size. During the treatment, the bulging organs and tissues are shifted back into the abdomen. The stretched portion of the abdomen that bulges out is removed; and the abdominal defect is closed. Mesh may be used to reinforce the abdominal wall to decrease the risk of recurrence.

Refusing to seek treatment immediately if you think you may have a ventral hernia, can result in severe or even life-threatening issues. By following the personalized treatment plans that Dr. Dasari puts in place, you can greatly diminish the risk of a major complication.
