Abstract

The repair of inguinal hernia and hydrocele is one of the most common operations in a pediatric surgery practice. This work reviews current concepts in the management of the inguinal hernia and hydrocele. The authors describe current concepts of anesthetic management of children undergoing repair of inguinal hernia. The authors also discuss current management of the contralateral hernia, hernias in premature infants, and the management of an incarcerated hernia. In addition, the authors discuss the role of laparoscopy in the surgical treatment of an inguinal hernia and its application for investigation of the contralateral inguinal canal.
