VAGINAL HERNIA: WITH A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE

VAGINAL HERNIA: WITH A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE Abstract Vaginal hernia is a herniation of the peritoneum pushing downward through the pelvic floor into the vaginal vault or along the wall between the vagina and the rectum or bladder, sometimes extending between them all the way to the perineum. With prolapsus uteri, it is not uncommon; but uncomplicated vaginal hernia is considered rare. The condition is interesting to obstetricians, as it appears to occur most frequently during or following labor; it is of interest also to gynecologists, in the differential diagnosis of cystocele and rectocele and as a complication of prolapsus uteri. Vaginal hernia is a term used to designate a subvariety of pelvic hernia, the latter term including all hernias through the pelvic floor. This subvariety of hernia is named from the point of egress, the practice used in the nomenclature of the inguinal hernias.

Abstract

Abstract Vaginal hernia is a herniation of the peritoneum pushing downward through the pelvic floor into the vaginal vault or along the wall between the vagina and the rectum or bladder, sometimes extending between them all the way to the perineum. With prolapsus uteri, it is not uncommon; but uncomplicated vaginal hernia is considered rare. The condition is interesting to obstetricians, as it appears to occur most frequently during or following labor; it is of interest also to gynecologists, in the differential diagnosis of cystocele and rectocele and as a complication of prolapsus uteri. Vaginal hernia is a term used to designate a subvariety of pelvic hernia, the latter term including all hernias through the pelvic floor. This subvariety of hernia is named from the point of egress, the practice used in the nomenclature of the inguinal hernias. The recognition and use of this term would group instances of this rare References 1. Barker, F.: Vaginal Hernia or Vaginal Enterocele , Am. J. Obst. 9:177, 1876. 2.
