Excerpt from Progressive Medicine, Vol. 2: A Quarterly Digest of Advances, Discoveries and Improvements in the Medical and Surgical Sciences; June, 1921
Direct Inguinal Hernia. The outstanding feature of the literature dealing with hernia during the past year is the stress th... at is laid by a number of surgeons upon the need for a better technic in dealing with the problem of the repair of direct hernia. Anyone who has had much experience in treating hernia knows to his sorrow the diffi culty that often presents itself to the operator in attempting to effect a radical cure on a certain type of individual, usually a thin, middle aged male, whose conjoined tendon is exceedingly deficient, whose abdominal muscular development is unusually poor and whose hernia amounts to a bulging over the external ring, with evidence of weakness from the rectus muscle edge over to or nearly to the anterior superior iliac Spine. Sometimes the ring is enlarged several fingers' breadth and the palpating finger can be pushed directly back, showing that the ¿oor of the canal is being composed principally of transversalis fascia and peritoneum.
