Inguinoscrotal bladder hernias: report of a series and review of the literature


, : Inguinoscrotal bladder hernias: report of a series and review of the literature. Canadian Urological Association Journal 2(6): 619-623

Bladder involvement occurs in 1%-4% of cases of inguinal hernias. Among obese men aged 50 to 70, the incidence may reach 10%.1,2 The diagnosis of bladder involvement is often difficult to delineate at the time of presentation and may only become apparent at the time of herniorrhaphy. Surgical management pertaining to the approach, repair and potential need for bladder resection may challenge the surgeon. We report a series of 4 cases of large inguinoscrotal bladder hernias and provide a literature review. Our goal is to highlight the clinical presentation and the decisive issues surrounding the diagnosis and management of this condition.

In a series of experiments, wether lambs (beginning weight 20-30 kg) were chronically injected (s.c.) with synthetic thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH). The objectives were to examine pituitary prolactin (PRL), thyrotropin (TSH) and growth hormon...
