Pediatric Inguinal Hernia Repair - Male - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
An inguinal hernia usually shows up as a bulge in the lower abdomen also called the groin or the scrotum. Before birth, a male baby's testicles grow inside his abdomen and then travel to the scrotum. To get to the scrotum, the testicles must pass through two openings called the internal and external inguinal rings and a passage between them called the inguinal canal formed by abdominal wall muscles. As the testicles enter the scrotum, tissue lining the abdominal wall comes with them forming a sac. Normally the opening of the sac into the inguinal canal closes within six months after birth. Sometimes for unknown reasons, the opening of the sac does not close, as a result, the open tissue sac may fill with fluid that normally stays inside the abdomen. The fluid-filled sac surrounding the testicle is called a hydrocele. A small piece of the baby's intestine or some fatty tissue from the abdomen may also slide into the sac resulting in an inguinal hernia. Usually, a doctor will be able to gently reduce or push the intestine back into the abdomen. However, the intestine may become trapped or incarcerated inside the tissue sac. This will appear as a hard and tender bulge and is an emergency. After about six hours, the intestine inside an incarcerated hernia may lose its blood supply and die. This is called a strangulated hernia and is an emergency that requires immediate medical attention and surgery to repair it. Hydroceles and inguinal hernias require an operation to tie off and remove the tissue sac to prevent future herniation and possible injury to the small intestine. To begin, the surgeon will make a small incision near the hernia. Next, the surgeon will carefully separate the tissue sac away from the cord structures including small blood vessels and the vas deferens that are attached to the testicle. The surgeon will then open the sac to look for any herniated contents inside. Usually, the sac is empty. However, if herniated contents are present they will be moved back into the abdomen. Sometimes in children younger than two years of age, the surgeon will insert an instrument called a laparoscope through the open tissue sac. The laparoscope contains a camera that will allow the surgeon to look at the internal ring on the other side and see if there's a hernia on that side. If the other internal ring is open and there is a hernia, the surgeon will need to make a similar repair on that side. After checking the other side for a hernia, the surgeon will tie off the empty tissue sac with a suture. The remainder of the sac will be removed. Finally, the surgeon will close the incision with dissolvable sutures, skin glue, or closure tape dressing. The baby may receive an injection of anesthesia in the skin near the incision to help control pain that happens after the procedure. To find out more about the repair of a pediatric inguinal hernia, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."
