What is Ventral Hernia?

Description of the Disease

Ventral hernia, also known as white line hernia, is a pathological condition in which there is a protrusion of internal organs through a defect in the abdominal wall's white line. This can cause unpleasant symptoms and complications.


  • Simple ventral hernia
  • Complex ventral hernia


  • Abdominal pain
  • Swelling
  • Nausea and vomiting


Ventral hernia can be caused by increased intra-abdominal pressure, obesity, pregnancy, as well as intense physical exercises.


Diagnosis includes a physical examination by a doctor, ultrasound, CT scan or MRI to confirm the diagnosis.


Treatment may involve conservative methods (such as using a support belt) as well as surgical intervention to repair the abdominal wall defect.


To prevent ventral hernia, it is recommended to control weight, avoid intense physical exercises, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.


Treatment and diagnosis of ventral hernia are carried out by a gastroenterologist or surgeon.
