Resumen

SANCHEZ PORTELA, Carlos A et al. Inguinal hernia. A two-year study. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2005, vol.9, n.3, pp.41-50. ISSN 1561-3194.

Inguinal hernia represented 3.42 % of surgeries from the General Surgery Service at Abel Santamaria Cuadrado General Hospital during years 2002 and 2003. in this surgeries, more than the third (36 %) of patients ranged 41 - 50 years of age when being operated on. Masculine sex prevailed over feminine sex with a ratio 16/2 and, moreover, throughout the whole study it was observed a slight predominance of the right side over the left one with a ratio 3/2. 48.5 % of herniated patients performed a physical strain before the ocurrence of the hernia and 50 % of the studied ones went to the surgeon before 1 after the onset tof the disease took place. Indirect inguinal hernia prevailed over the right one with a ratio 4/1. Incarceration was the most frequent complication found. Among local postoperative complicactions found, the most significant were sepsis of the wound, hematoma and seroma. Total mortality was 0.39 %. We decided to carry out this work in order to perform a study of the behaviour of inguinal hernias in our hospital during a period of two years.
