ConclusionTemporary RLV-induced dilation of the deep inguinal ring in pregnancy is not a common precursor for the development of inguinal hernias later in life. All findings support the theory that the hindrance of venous blood flow caused by the gravid uterus is an important contributing factor for RLV in pregnancy, which is self-limited but has a high risk of recurrence and is not an indication for surgery before or after delivery or for cesarean section.

ConclusionsVentral hernias in women of childbearing age have a pooled recurrence rate of 12%. Pregnancy may be considered a risk factor for ventral hernia recurrence. Female patients of childbearing age with asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic ventral hernias that do not pose a significant strain on the patients ’ quality of life could be provided with the option of watchful waiting, with appropriate education of risks while discussing management.
