22 Possible Causes for Abdominal Pain Radiating to the Inguinal Region

  • Appendicitis

    Appendectomy is the most commonly performed surgical procedure, affecting 1%-8% of the paediatric population, with a total 7% lifetime risk, most likely in adolescents and young adults.A case of familial aggregation was reported in our hospital in a family composed of nine siblings from which six of them (66.6%) had[…][]

  • Ilioinguinal Nerve Entrapment

    Pain can usually be elicited by palpating laterally about the scar margin, and the pain usually radiates inferomedially toward the inguinal region and into the suprapubic[] […] can occur) - Pain can usually be elicited by palpating laterally about the scar margin, and the pain usually radiates inferomedially toward the inguinal region and into the[] The first is a history of surgical procedure in the lower abdominal area, although spontaneous entrapment can occur.[]

  • Inguinal Lymphadenopathy

    Vessels in inflamed lymph nodes are dilated compared with vessels in lymph nodes involved with metastases, which may be compressed by tumor cells. Accordingly, we hypothesized that the Doppler spectral waveform might be different in lymph nodes involved by benign disease and those involved by metastases. We[…][]

  • Indirect Inguinal Hernia

    Inguinal hernias are a common entity with nearly 31,000 repairs annually in The Netherlands and over 800,000 in the USA. The aim of the present study is to determine whether a laparoscopically diagnosed patent processus vaginalis (PPV) is a risk factor for the development of groin hernia. The study population was[…][]

  • Funiculitis

    Xanthogranulomatous orchitis is an extremely rare inflammatory nonneoplastic lesion of the testis. We report a case of a 13-year-old adolescent boy who presented a painless left hemiscrotal swelling. The subsequent ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed the presence of abnormal expanding tissue[…][]

  • Obturator Hernia

    Only two cases of appendicitis in strangulated obturator hernia have been previously reported. In the present case, an 83-year-old woman had fatal anaerobic myonecrosis of the thigh that resulted from gangrenous appendicitis in the right obturator foramen. Early diagnosis, prompt surgical intervention, and[…][]

  • Pelvic Fracture

    Diagnostic cysto-urethrogram (CUG) is accepted as the standard of imaging for lower urinary tract (LUT) injuries in patients with pelvic fracture. This study evaluates the prevalence of LUT trauma and adequacy of diagnostic CUG in the initial assessment of patients with pelvic fractures. A retrospective review on[…][]

  • Femoral Hernia

    A.G. Richter described in 1777 a hernia in which the antimesenteric part of the small intestine was incarcerated. We demonstrate in the article the diagnostic pitfalls of the Richter's femoral hernia. The physical signs consist of vague abdominal complaints, swelling in the groin but usually no symptoms of intestinal[…][]

  • Direct Inguinal Hernia

    The aim of this study was to explore the clinical efficacy of a novel retrograde puncture approach to establish a preperitoneal space for laparoscopic direct inguinal hernia repair with inguinal ring suturing. Forty-two patients who underwent laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair with retrograde puncture for[…][]

  • Appendiceal Abscess

    An appendiceal abscess is usually treated conservatively. Drainage of the abscess is instituted if this treatment is unsuccessful. Some surgeons practise immediate appendectomy and abscess drainage. An alternative ultraconservative approach whereby abscess drainage is avoided has been reviewed retrospectively.[…][]
