There is no lack of recent literature on the subject of inguinal hernia, and no lack of variety in the operations suggested for its relief. All manner of technical procedures have been described; and varying degrees of success have been reported. These articles, however, have dealt with details. There has been a surprising absence of any effort to submit the principles governing all the accepted operative procedures to a really adequate analysis and criticism.

INGUINAL HERNIOPLASTY WITH FASCIA TRANSPLANT
TLDR
Herniorrhaphy of any type has been found in all clinics to be an inadequate procedure for the treatment of some inguinal hernias and the most recent workers on this particular problem sought some method that will effect a larger percentage of cures. Expand

Raymond Read was born and brought up in London, England, where he attended public schools and completed his studies in 1947 at King’s College Hospital, London, and earned his medical degree from Cambridge University. Expand
Metabolic Aspects of Hernia Disease
TLDR
Cooper1 (1804) not only described the transversalis fascia and its role in preventing groin herniation, but listed factors which increase intra-abdominal pressure: cough, obesity, constipation, pregnancy, ascites, and unusual exertion such as heavy lifting. Expand
The Unified Theory of hernia formation
TLDR
The multiple theories on mechanisms of hernia formation have, at last, melded into one single Unified Theory ofHernia formation: collagen. Expand
Etiology of inguinal hernia: ultrastructure of rectus sheath revisited
TLDR
The theory linking connective tissue alterations with the etiology of hernia, and stating that these alterations include connectives tissue at locations distant from the hernia site as well, is supported, as the rectus sheath itself does not form a hernial defect. Expand
Epidemology of Hernias in the Female
TLDR
It is surprising that females do not develop more hernias than males, given the great increases in intraabdominal pressure seen in pregnancy. Expand
Epidemiology of Inguinal Hernia: A Useful Aid for Adequate Surgical Decisions
TLDR
The hernioplasty and cholecystectomy are the most common forms of elective surgery in most countries and precise epidemiological data about inguinal hernia are difficult to obtain. Expand
Herniology: past, present, and future
TLDR
This malady explains why prostheses slow but do not eliminate recurrence, and why the Lichtenstein procedure has dominated inguinal herniorrhaphy in the 21st century. Expand
Archaic terms and dogmas impeding care of abdominal and pelvic herniation
TLDR
It is time gynecologists and herniologists join in the effort to develop antidotes for combating this pernicious co-morbidity which has been shown also to cause aneurysms, diverticulosis coli, skin changes, and emphysema. Expand
