Reduced Blood Supply
The non-reducible hernias are larger in size and often becomes strangulated inside the weak muscle wall. It leads to blockage of blood supply to the strangulated part. Reduced blood supply results in poor functioning of the hernial sac as well as surrounding area and causes severe pain. A strangulated hernia is a medical emergency that may put your life in danger and therefore needs immediate surgical removal.
To avoid this life-threatening complication, you have to consider early signs and symptoms of a hernia and consult your doctor for evaluation. It is estimated that the strangulated hernias are linked to 7 percent higher risk of death.
