Spigelian hernia as a cause of small bowel obstruction.
South Med J. 2010 Jun; 103(6):567-9.SM

Abstract

Spigelian hernia is a rare abdominal wall defect usually appearing between the abdominal muscle lateral to the rectus abdominis and through a debilitated spigelian aponeurosis. Spigelian hernias account for 0.12% to 2.4% of all abdominal wall hernias with a 17-24% risk of strangulation. We report the case of a 77-year-old male that presented with small bowel obstruction with incarcerated spigelian hernia which was successfully treated with a Ventralex hernia patch (Bard Access Systems, Inc., Murray Hill, NJ). A small open incision over the incarcerated hernia was a safe and effective method of repairing an incarcerated spigelian hernia in an urgent fashion.
