Sliding Inguinal Hernia in Female Infants

Sliding Inguinal Hernia in Female Infants Abstract In recent years, the literature on the subject of infant hernias has been voluminous. One phase of this problem, sliding hernia in female infants, has received little attention.

In more recent reviews of the subject of infant hernias, this particular type of infant hernia is completely ignored.1,3,5,7,10 In 1953 Roberto11 described a sliding hernia, with uterus, adnexa, and bladder making up one wall of the sac, in a 5-weekold infant.

Abstract

Abstract In recent years, the literature on the subject of infant hernias has been voluminous. One phase of this problem, sliding hernia in female infants, has received little attention. In the older literature isolated mention of this sliding hernia is made without adequate descriptions or methods of treatment. In more recent reviews of the subject of infant hernias, this particular type of infant hernia is completely ignored.1,3,5,7,10 In 1953 Roberto11 described a sliding hernia, with uterus, adnexa, and bladder making up one wall of the sac, in a 5-weekold infant. In 1957 Wiley and Chavez13 reported 12 cases of sliding hernia out of a total of 52 female infant hernias and described their method of correcting this condition.
