Why Delaying Hernia Surgery Can be Fatal | Dr. Armaghan Ahmed

بچوں میں ہرنیا کے علاج میں تاخیر کئی مسائل کو جم دے سکتی ہے

Emergency hernia operations, unlike elective procedures, come with an increased risk of death according to a recent study.

Most hernias aren’t a big issue if dealt with in time, but postponing surgery could increase your risk of having a strangulated hernia. If that happens, you’d need an emergency operation, and according to the latest research, that could be risky.

In this blog, we’re going to dive into what this study has shown us and the dangers of delaying surgery.

Understanding the Latest Study
The latest research examined 107,838 groin hernia repairs in total at units participating in the Swedish Hernia Register. It found emergency operations were more frequent in women than in men for every type of hernia. In fact, 41% of femoral hernias in women were treated in emergency situations, compared to 30% in men. For inguinal hernias, the emergency treatment rates were 8.1% in women and 5.3% in men.

On average, patients that had emergency operations were about ten years older than those having elective surgery. Femoral hernias required emergency surgery three times more often than inguinal hernias, and carried a higher risk of mortality, especially when bowel resection was needed.

Women’s higher mortality rate was due to a larger percentage developing a femoral hernia, alongside an increased risk for emergency surgery across all hernia types. Other factors influencing mortality risk included high ASA scores and postoperative complications.

The mortality risk following emergency hernia surgery operations was six to nine times higher than that of the general population.

The Dangers of Delaying Hernia Surgery
Delaying hernia surgery can lead to several potential complications, and these risks tend to increase over time. They include:

Incarceration
Strangulation
Bowel obstruction
Increased repair difficulty

A hernia becomes incarcerated when the tissue protruding through the abdominal wall gets stuck and can’t be pushed back into the abdomen. This can cause severe pain and discomfort.

Strangulation is a more serious condition and is considered a medical emergency. If the incarcerated hernia is not treated promptly, the blood supply to the trapped tissue can be cut off, leading to strangulation. This can cause the tissue to become gangrenous or die, which is life-threatening and requires immediate surgery.

An untreated hernia can also lead to a partial or complete blockage of the intestines. Symptoms of a bowel obstruction can include severe pain, nausea, vomiting, and an inability to pass gas or have bowel movements.

Over time, the hernia grows larger, which can also make it more difficult to repair. These are just some of the dangers of delaying hernia surgery.

Do All Hernias Need Surgery?
Not all hernias necessarily require surgery right away, but they will need to be operated on to remove them eventually. The decision for immediate surgical intervention often depends on several factors including the type of hernia, its size, the symptoms, and the overall health of the patient.

Small, asymptomatic hernias (those not causing pain or discomfort) might not need immediate surgery. Instead, a ‘watchful waiting’ approach may be recommended by a hernia specialist. This means monitoring the hernia over time to see if it changes in size or starts causing symptoms.

However, certain types of hernias are more likely to require surgery. This includes hernias that are growing, causing pain or discomfort, or impacting your daily activities. Similarly, hernias that pose a risk of complications such as incarceration or strangulation, typically require surgical repair to prevent serious risks to the health.
