Femoral hernia: clinical significance of radiologic diagnosis

Bergenfeldt, Magnus; Ekberg, Olle LU ; Kesek, Pavel LU and Lasson, Åke LU (1990) In European Journal of Radiology 10(3). p.177-180
Abstract
A retrospective study of 18 patients with femoral hernia assessed by herniography is presented. Although a palpable lump was present in 11 patients (61%), the diagnosis of a femoral hernia was not made before herniography. Surgical exploration was performed in 12 patients and a femoral hernia was found and repaired with beneficial outcome in 9 of them. In conclusion: herniography is of value for the diagnosis of a femoral hernia in patients with obscure groin pain.
