Abstract

While many scientific reports deal with inguinal hernia, including treatment methods and prosthetic devices proposed to provide a cure, few studies have sought to deepen our understanding of the etiology of this disease. The genesis of inguinal protrusion seems to be a neglected subject, even though addressing hernia genesis may be helpful for improving techniques and materials for surgical treatment. To clarify the source of inguinal protrusions, macroscopic and histological alterations of the inferior epigastric vessels in the herniated groin have been studied. These vascular structures exhibit significant features that could help to illuminate hernia genesis.
