About

The purpose of this study is to asses the effect of chronic constipation on formation of inguinal hernia using Constipation Severity Scale.

Full description

Causes of inguinal hernia are known to be multifactorial, although not fully understood. Besides family history, and connective tissue diseases, the sudden increase in abdominal pressure as heavy lifting, chronic constipation , coughing, straining , situations such as difficulty urinating facilitate the formation and emergence of hernia. Constipation severity scale(CSS) was developed by Varma et al in 2008. CSS is a scale to determine the individuals defecation frequency, the intensity and difficulty during defecation.CSS has three subscales including Pain, Congestion stool and Large Intestine laziness(0-73 points).High scores indicate that serious symptoms. Investigators found no studies that show how constipation impact on groin hernias. Investigators are planning to understand the effect of constipation on direct and indirect hernia formation.
