Surgery on inguinal hernia. Sequence of artworks showing open repair of an inguinal hernia and a ventral hernia in a patient's groin. At left is a schematic sagittal view showing a recurrent right inguinal hernia and an incarcerated ventral hernia. The latter extends towards the middle of the body (the midline). At upper centre is an anterior view, showing where the incision is made. At upper right, the hernias are shown in an anterior cutaway view. At lower centre (schematic sagittal view), the hernias have been repaired and the abdominal wall reinforced with a mesh (blue). At lower right, the inguinal hernia is repaired with the spermatic cord maintained intact.
