Reduction Inguinal Hernia (Video)

The video shows how a visible inguinal hernia is reduced. First of all the infant or child must be calmed or sedated. The reduction is performed with two hands; the fingers of one hand form a funnel at the external inguinal ring while the fingers of the other hand compress the hernia sac filled with intestine concentrically, so that the content of the hernia sac can re-enter the peritoneal cavity.
