PMID:  10743429     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Repair of an inguinal hernia is one of the commonest operations undertaken by surgeons but the role of trauma in causing inguinal hernia is not well understood. This paper does not attempt to discuss the cause of inguinal hernia but seeks to analyse the cases which may be accepted by the Courts as being due to trauma.
