[Article in Dutch]


A review of the bovine inguinal and scrotal hernia is given on the basis of two cases. One six year old Blonde d'Aquitaine bull had to be euthanised with severe muscle damage 13 days after surgical intervention, while the other patient, a five year old Meusse Rhine and Yssel bull recovered uneventfully after surgery. The literature is reviewed and the incidence, pathogenesis, clinical evaluation and surgical techniques are described.
