Small bowel obstruction secondary to incarcerated Richter's hernia from laparoscopic hernia repair.J Laparoendosc Surg. 1993 Apr; 3(2):173-6.JL
Presented herein is a case of a patient who, during a laparoscopic herniorrhaphy, developed profound bradycardia upon introduction of the pneumoperitoneum. Following discharge, the patient presented 24 h later with herniation through the trocar port incision. With laparoscopic surgery being used more frequently, there will be an increase in the incidence of these types of complications; however, with better awareness, they may be avoided.
