herniorrhaphy

herniorrhaphy

 [her″ne-or´ah-fe]
surgical repair of hernia, with suture of the abdominal wall. When the weakened area is very large, some type of strong synthetic material is sewn over the defect to reinforce the area; this type of repair is sometimes specifically called hernioplasty, although the two terms are often used interchangeably. Postoperative care is similar to that for any type of abdominal surgery. The patient is protected from respiratory infections, which may cause coughing and undue strain on the suture line. Ambulation is usually not restricted, and the physician instructs the patient in activities that can be resumed after discharge from the hospital.
