[Perforated appendiceal apex in an inguinal hernia as the cause of chronic abdominal wall abscess].Chirurg. 1998 Dec; 69(12):1386-7.C
Perforated appendicitis within a hernia of any localisation is found in paediatric patients and in the elderly. Despite all modern diagnostic bias, it still may be found unexpectedly during operation. The fore most aim of surgical treatment has to be protection of the intra-abdominal cavity during appendectomy. Thus we provide it for contamination and avoid additional injury of the old and weak patient. The reported case fits in the history of unusual appendectomies.
