The laparoscopic approach enables occlusion of the internal inguinal ring (MARIEN, 2001; BOENING et al., 2007; CARON & BRAKENHOFF, 2008; WILDERJANS et al., 2009) and can be used to prevent recurrences following emergency surgical intervention.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of homologous pericardium grafts for internal inguinal ring closure in horses, comparing mechanical or manual laparoscopic suture.
In the remaining case, synechiae had formed between the caudal edge of the manually sutured inguinal ring and the large colon, while omental adhesion were observed on the contralateral (mechanically sutured) ring.
Average time required for internal inguinal ring closure using simple interrupted intracorporeal sutures in horses suffering from inguinal herniation was reported to be 110 minutes (CARON & BRAKENHOFF, 2008).
The anterior cul-de-sac, deep inguinal rings, and the lateral pelvic sidewall peritoneum are the most frequently missed areas.
In hernias containing bowel, intestinal obstruction occurs due to constricting deep and superficial inguinal rings or in rare cases due to omental band within the hernial sac [2].
On entering the abdomen an omental band was found entering into the inguinal canal through the deep inguinal ring. 40 cm long segment of gangrenous bowel was found to be strangulated by the omental band entering into the inguinal canal.
[7] Intestinal obstruction in a hernia results from constriction of the bowel and the superficial or the deep inguinal ring. In both cases the segment of the strangulated bowel is a content of the hernia sac.
The right inguinal ring and hernial sac were exposed by blunt dissection.
