Rate as for inguinal hernia
Large, postoperative, recurrent, not well supported under ordinary conditions and not readily reducible, when considered inoperable
Small, postoperative recurrent, or unoperated irremediable, not well supported by truss, or not readily reducible
Postoperative recurrent, readily reducible and well supported by truss or belt
Not operated, but remediable
Small, reducible, or without true hernia protrusion
Note: Add 10 percent for bilateral involvement, provided the second hernia is compensable. This means that the more severely disabling hernia is to be evaluated, and 10 percent, only, added for the second hernia, if the latter is of compensable degree.
