ConclusionAcute appendicitis should be suspected as a cause of mechanical intestinal obstruction in an elderly patient with no obvious diagnostic cause, and can be managed with simple appendectomy when an early intervention is made.

ConclusionThe clinicians should consider this rare condition in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with large paraumbilical hernias associated with classical symptoms of acute pancreatitis, particularly in the absence of typical risk factors for pancreatitis. An intravenous contrast-enhanced abdominal CT scan should be performed immediately in these patients. We recommend the patients and the surgeons to consider prompt surgical repair for paraumbilical hernias to avoid further complications and the higher incidence of morbidity and mortality associated with emergency surgeries.

ConclusionCIH is a rare condition due to embryologic developmental abnormalities. Their diagnosis is based on pathognomonic findings on computed tomography scanner (CTscan). Surgical treatment is the mainstay treatment. Delay diagnosis of strangulated CIH is associated with significant morbidity andmortality.

AbstractComplex ventral hernia (CVH) describes large, anterior, ventral hernias. The incidence of CVH is rising rapidly due to increasing laparotomy rates in ever older, obese and co-morbid patients. Surgeons with a specific interest in CVH repair are now frequently referring these patients for imaging, normally computed tomography scanning. This review describes what information is required from preoperative imaging and the surgical options and techniques used for CVH repair, so that radiologists understand the postoperative appearances specific to CVH and are aware of the common complications following surgery.Key Points...

CONCLUSIONS: Traumatic abdominal wall hernia can be visualized by ultrasonography, but CT scan is often used as the final diagnostic modality because of the risk of associated intra-abdominal injuries. Open surgical repair in layers or laparoscopic suturing during diagnostic laparoscopy may be appropriate in managing traumatic abdominal wall hernias in children. Non-surgical management has been described, but available data do not support a general recommendation for a non-surgical approach. PMID: 29301610 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Obturator hernia is relatively rare. However physicians should keep it in mind and have clinical suspicion for obturator hernia as a cause of intestinal obstruction in female, elderly and multiparous patients in order to make an appropriate diagnosis and avoid bowel ischaemia.

Abstract Background Wounds resulting from the closure of temporary stomas have a high risk of developing an incisional hernia (IH) with incidences around 30 % in studies designed to investigate this outcome. A temporary diverting ileostomy (TDI) is often used in patients after low anterior resection (LAR) for rectal cancer. Methods The OSTRICH study is a retrospective cohort study of rectal cancer patients who had a LAR with a reversed TDI and at least one CT scan during follow-up. Two radiologists independently evaluated all abdominal CT scans to d...

Conclusion: Spontaneous faecal fistula in inguinal region following rupture of strangulated Richter’s hernia especially in adults is very rare and can occur even in absence of obstructive symptoms. In presentation of any groin swelling, there is need for an early accurate diagnosis followed by prompt treatment. The delay in its diagnosis and management may result in this rare complication of spontaneous faecal fistula. This reflects the state of health care in the developing world and needs to be addressed by the concerned authorities.

This report serves to highlight that even with novel cases of massive and atypical hernias, posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release is a reproducible repair that can be performed with good result in a variety of circumstances.
