- n. In pathology, inguinal hernia or rupture: often restricted to an oblique inguinal hernia which has not passed the external ring, but occupies the inguinal canal.
The external bubonocele, H, Plate 37, G, Plate 38, when recently formed, may be detected at a situation midway between the iliac and pubic spinous processes, where it has entered the internal ring.
But, in most instances, the bubonocele distends the inguinal canal somewhat; and the impulse which on coughing is felt at a place above the femoral arch, will serve to indicate, by negative evidence, that it is not a femoral hernia.
In this place, the incipient hernia or bubonocele, covered by its sac, lies on the forepart of the spermatic vessels, and becomes invested by those same coverings which constitute the inguinal canal, through which these vessels pass.
Both forms of inguinal herniae may exist at the same time on the same side: the external, G, Plate 38, being a bubonocele, still occupying the inguinal canal; while the internal, H, protrudes through the external ring, T, in the usual way.
The funnel-shaped elongation of the fascia transversalis receiving g, the sac of the external bubonocele.
The bubonocele, projecting through the internal ring at the situation marked
Hernia that does not descend into the scrotum he calls bubonocele.
