- (Inguinal Hernias (direct and indirect)) A hernia is a defect in the wall that normally holds the structure surrounded by the wall. In this case the defect is in the "wall" dividing the abdominal cavity from the groin and leg. This can be a hole or a sac.
- hernia in which a loop of intestine enters the inguinal canal; the most common type of hernia in males
- An inguinal hernia is a protrusion of abdominal-cavity contents through the inguinal canal. They are very common (lifetime risk 27% for men, 3% for women), and their repair is one of the most frequently performed surgical operations.
- (Laproscopy) Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), bandaid surgery, keyhole surgery is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.
- Fix or mend (a thing suffering from damage or a fault)
- a formal way of referring to the condition of something; "the building was in good repair"
- the act of putting something in working order again

Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair (Laproscopic Surgical Technique)
This program is part of a series of multimedia surgical teaching tools edited by Dr. James C. Rosser, Jr., of Yale University School of Medicine. Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair provides interactive, hands-on training in hernia repair from a laparoscopic perspective. Each CD-ROM in the series features engaging interactive design, incorporating 3-D images and animation, video and audio, creating a virtual operating room for the user. Detailed video/still images of anatomical structures familiarize the user with the stepped procedures of each stage of operation. Room Set-up is re-enacted demonstrating correct orientation of surgical/visualization equipment and surgical personnel. Procedure section walks the user through all phases of the operation. Users can exit one phase, and jump to another out of sequence, allowing for independent review. Indications/Contraindications are also included.
It may not be an ipod on a desk, but this is what is relevent in my life, today, for technology. On May 11th I had a large cyst removed from my left ovary (they also found one on my right when they were in there). Back in the olden days (ok maybe about 5 to 10 years ago) this would have resulted in my loosing my ovaries, but because of technology, I was able to just have the cysts removed and got to keep my ovaries and the chance to have kids via laproscopic surgery. I have an incision in my belly button and two small incisions on my abdomen and that's all. Instead of 3 months down, I will be down about 2 weeks (should have only been 2 to 3 days but I had a bit more invasive surgery than was originally planned). If it wasn't for this new technology, I'd probably still be in the hospital actually. Eeek.

The advent of laparoscopic techniques has heralded a new era in vaginal surgery, but it has not been without its problems and risks. Unfortunately, its many advantages have meant that it is increasingly adopted in all situations, including those where the vaginal route would still be preferable for both patient and surgeon. Vaginal and Laparoscopic Vaginal Surgery aims to re-establish a proper balance between the two methods. It explains each procedure in full and details the roles that each procedure should play in the repertoire of the gynecological surgeon. Gynecologists, oncologists and gynecological surgeons, as well as students in these fields, will benefit from this text.
