Mesenteric hernias through defects of the mesosigmoid.
Aust N Z J Surg. 1990 May; 60(5):396-9.AN

Abstract

Internal herniation through defects in the gastrointestinal mesentery is extremely rare. Two patients with small bowel herniation involving the sigmoid mesocolon are reported. The condition has a high incidence of strangulation, with rapid onset of gangrene of the bowel. The mortality is high and the role of early surgical intervention is stressed.
