Answer

Because most interparietal hernias are associated with an undescended testis, the spermatic cord should be identified. In a young child, an orchiopexy is performed if the testis is not gangrenous; in an older child or adult, the testicle should be removed. For the usual presentation of bowel incarceration, a properitoneal indirect inguinal hernia repair is the best approach.
