Abstract:
An organ or tissue protrudes through an opening in the body wall, causing a hernia. A tear in the abdomen wall or diaphragm may cause the aperture, or it may be a natural opening such as the inguinal canal or femoral canal. The protruded tissue is covered by the skin, unlike in a prolapse. A typical hernia has a hernial ring and a hernial sac through which the contents have migrated. The neck, body, and fundus make up the hernial sac, which encloses the hernial contents. A 3-month-old cross-bred buffalo bull calf was brought with a history of swelling in the umbilical region. Upon physical examination, the condition was diagnosed as umbilical hernia. The umbilical hernia was reduced and corrected by performing herniorrhaphy. The animal had an uneventful recovery.
