Double omental hernia--case report on a very rare cause of intestinal obstruction.
Ann Acad Med Singap. 2002 Nov; 31(6):799-801.AA

Abstract

INTRODUCTION

We report a case of transomental herniation of the ileum through a defect in the gastrocolic ligament with re-emergence through a defect in the gastrohepatic ligament. This type of herniation is extremely rare and a review of the literature is presented.

CLINICAL PRESENTATION

A 41-year-old Chinese male presented with signs and symptoms of intestinal obstruction.

TREATMENT

An urgent laparotomy was undertaken and he was found to have a rare form of intra-abdominal hernia. The hernia was reduced and the defects were closed.

OUTCOME

Postoperative recovery was unremarkable.

CONCLUSION

Urgent operation should not be delayed because of the high mortality associated with strangulation.
