Mele414 just mentioned this and I have a couple of questions about the inferior epigastric vessel in the inguinal area.
Is there any reason during open IH surgery that this would be removed? I can not find any reference to this in medical searches during open surgery but as Mele414 stated during lap surgery.
If the surgeon ripped, tore or cut it by mistake, what type of bleeding would occur?
If they were not prepared for this during surgery(loss of fluids) could this be the cause of no urine in bladder post surgery?
Could they fix it or do they just remove it and use surgical clips? Any side effects?
Should this be in your post op medical history?Should the patient be made aware of this ? Since it might be needed for some future medical issue?
Can any imaging show that it was removed?
Thanks again for all you do for us.
