Hernia Trusses, Infant
Definition : Abdominal support hernia trusses designed to retain an infant reduced hernia (frequently umbilical) into the abdominal cavity by pressure. These devices usually consist of a hard plastic or rubber pad (i.e., a compress) attached on the infant navel using straps and/or dressings. Infant hernia trusses in different sizes and shapes are available; they are typically used in infants for several months up to a year. Hernia trusses for other less frequent types of infant hernias (e.g., inguinal) are also available.
