An unusual case of herniation of small bowel through an iatrogenic defect of the falciform ligament.
Eur Radiol. 2002 Mar; 12(3):531-3.ER

Abstract

Internal herniation through a congenital defect in the falciform ligament is extremely rare. We report an unusual observation of small bowel obstruction through an iatrogenic defect of the falciform ligament. Prompt diagnosis was made by helical CT, permitting a rapid surgical procedure to preserve the viability of the obstructed segment.
