What is a hernia?
Welcome to our site.
Hernia is derived
from the Latin for "rupture" and is the protrusion of an organ or part
of an organ or other structure tough the wall of the cavity normally containing
Sir Percivall Pott, described
hernias in 1756 as:
"The disease which makes
the subject of the following tract, is one in which mankind are, on many
acounts, much interested. No age, sex, rank, or condition of life, is
exempted from it; the rich, the poor, the lazy,and the laborious, are
equally liable to it; it produces certain inconvenience to all who are
afflicted by it...
It sometimes puts the life
of the patient in such hazard, as to require one of the most delicate
operations in surgery; and it has in all times, from the most ancient
down to the present, rendered those who labor under it subject to the
most iniquitous frauds and impositions."
