etiology of hernia
An inguinal hernia (indirect) also occurs through the developmental failure of the processus vaginalis to close. As the testis descends, it pulls a tube of peritoneum along with it. This tube should naturally fibrose and become obliterated but often it fails to fibrose and allows a hernia to form. Recent studies have shown that calcitonin gene-related peptide and hepatocyte growth factor influence the closure of the pro- cessus, raising the possibility of a hormonal cause of hernia development.
