I have heard that a femoral hernia can be life threatening. What can it do?

In brief: Can stangulate

Femoral hernias have more tendency to strangulate, which means kill anything that me be stuck in the hernia such as intestine.
If this happens it becomes a surgical emergency and even if fixed correctly could still die from complications from the sepsis, overwhelming infection. They strangulate more, b/c hole is so small.
