"A strangulated hernia is a medical condition that occurs when the herniated tissue cuts off the blood supply to the intestinal tissues. The strangulated tissue can release toxins into the bloodstream, which may lead to sepsis or death. A strangulated hernia is marked by acute pain, bloody stools, constipation, fatigue, and fever. Surgery is the treatment of choice for strangulated hernias.
