in most of the usmle books (kaplan, FA, step up)
the onlything mentioned about is that it cause acute abdomen with some details on how to recognized b/w direct and indirect (inguinal)
femoral isn't mentioned (i think all u need to know is that it occur in female and its under the inguinal lig. with high likelihood of incarceration)
umbilical hernia, wait until 2 years then surgery, or if it rapidly enlarging.

hmmmm think with me ,what else.. that's it may be

I think umbilical hernia waiting is for children only. In adults, you should repair it electively since it's not going to resolve on its own.

lumbar disk hernia

should we know the anatomical land marks for the inguinal and femoral and direct hernias, Preferable, at least the relation of direct & indirect to inferior epigastric vessels
