Laparoscopic repair of incarcerated low spigelian hernia with transperitoneal PTFE DualMesh.
Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech. 2006 Dec; 16(6):427-31.SL

Abstract

There are different types of hernias that can develop at certain sites in the abdominal wall. Spigelian hernia (SH) is a protrusion of abdominal contents through a defect in the spigelian aponeurosis, in proximity to the external margin of the rectus muscle. Usually, abdominal wall hernia sac contains the omentum but may also contain small intestine that might become trapped in the hernia. When ischemia of herniated contents is suspected, urgent surgical treatment is advocated. Elective laparoscopic repair of SH is still under discussion. However, a recent randomized study comparing open and laparoscopic repair as elective treatment suggested that extraperitoneal laparoscopic repair is the technique that offers best results for the patients. Recent development of new biologic materials and technologies in laparoscopy has led to improved results. We report the successful repair of incarcerated low SH that was successfully managed by urgent laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay polytetrafluoroethylene mesh hernioplasty.
