This hernia, relatively infrequent, occurs in the femoral region (in the cranial part of the Scarpa’s triangle, inferior to the inguinal canal).


It protrudes through the orifice where the great vessels of the thigh pass: the femoral artery and vein.

Because of the particular configuration of the female pelvis, affects almost exclusively women. Never reaches large dimensions and are often not easily reducible. The strangulation is relatively frequent.
The conventional treatment of the disease is surgical with direct suture and / or  placement of a flat static mesh or plug.

Prof. Amato has developed the fixation free dynamic repair of femoral hernia using the 3D dynamic implant to obliterate the hernia opening as described in a dedicated scientific article (1) and cleary highighted in the picture below.

The results of this advanced fixation free surgical approach are outstanding:

  • Fast and safe mini-invasive approach
  • Day surgery procedure carried out in local anesthesia in the vast majority of cases.
  • Extremely low pain starting from the early postoperative stage
  • Return to normal activities within one week
  • Complication rate near to zero
