Anatomopathologic Analysis of Synchronically Operated Bilateral Inguinal Hernias

The aim of the study was statistic evaluation of anatomopathologic changes of synchoperated groin hernias.

Material and methods. In 1994-2005, 2099 patients were operated due to inguinal hernias. 1343 times the operation was conducted unilaterally, 756 (36.2%) bilaterally (1512 hernias). Patients were divided into three age groups: A ≤ 45 years of age, B - 46-64 years of age and C ≥ 65 years of age.

Results. Among those operated bilaterally and synchronically the most frequent were lateral hernias, constituting from 57.2% to 69.8%, medial from 21.41% to 28.4%, combined from 8.81% to 14.52% of all operated hernias in all age groups. Hernias size I (<1.5 cm) constituted among bilateral hernias 29.66% of cases in age group A and 15% in age group C. For unilateral hernias the numbers were respectively 32.95% and 8.32%. Hernias size III (>3 cm) made up for bilateral hernias 26.14% of cases in age A, for unilateral hernias that was 18.9%. In age group C the figures were respectively 47.05% and 47.54%. Hernias size II in all age groups constituted from 37.95% to 48.15% of all cases. Recurrent hernias constituted 8.46% of operated bilateral hernias (128 cases). Among unilateral hernias, 124 recurrent cases were operated (9.23%). Femoral hernias coexisted among 25 men (1.75%) and 10 women (11.9%) operated bilaterally and among 41 patients operated unilaterally (3.05%).

Conclusions. In case of bilateral hernias there was no correlation found between coexistence of femoral hernia and age of patients; among men they were mainly left, and in case of women - right side cases. Among unilaterally operated patients the coexistence of femoral hernia was observed more frequently in the elderly group, among women mostly on the right side.

distance training and a minimum of 15 hours of training per week (age: 36.00 ± 1.27 years; body height: 179.29 ± 10.77 cm; body mass: 74.50 ± 1.04 kg; fat mass: 9.02 ± 1.04%; muscular mass: 49.41 ± 1.27%). The experiment was performed during the European Ironman Championship held in Frankfurt (Germany) in 2012. All participants completed the Ironman race with times ranging from 09:08:15 (hh:mm:ss) to 11:40:10. Weather conditions during the race were as follows: average temperature: 21 o C (range 15-27), humidity: 63% (range 19-94), wind speed: 8 km/h, rain 1 mm
