Operation Notes for Hernioplasty

Introduction

Operation Notes for Hernioplasty: Hernioplasty is a surgical procedure performed to correct a hernia, a condition in which an organ or tissue pushes through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue. In hernioplasty, a synthetic mesh is used to reinforce the weakened area and prevent recurrence of the hernia.

Surgeon: [Surgeon’s Name]
Procedure: Hernioplasty (Mesh Repair)

Procedure

  • Positioning:
    • The patient was positioned in the supine position.
  • Skin Preparation:
    • The skin over the area of the hernia was cleaned and draped in a sterile fashion.
  • Incision:
    • An incision was made over the area of the hernia, typically parallel to the inguinal ligament for an inguinal hernia.
  • Dissection:
    • The subcutaneous tissue was dissected, and the hernia sac was identified. The hernia sac was dissected from the surrounding tissue and opened.
  • Hernia Reduction:
    • The contents of the hernia sac were inspected and reduced back into the abdominal cavity. If the contents were not reducible or appeared ischemic, appropriate steps were taken such as bowel resection.
  • Hernia Repair:
    • A mesh was placed over the hernia defect and secured in place to reinforce the weakened area.
  • Closure:
    • The wound was then closed in layers using absorbable sutures. The skin was closed with non-absorbable sutures, staples, or skin glue, based on the surgeon’s preference, and the wound was dressed.
