A case report of unexpected pathology within an incarcerated ventral hernia

Conclusion This is the first report of incisional hernia appendicitis with nonhealing colocutaneous fistulas secondary to Crohn’s. It is a lesson in developing a differential diagnosis of an inflammatory process within an incarcerated hernia and management of the complications related to laparoscopic hernial appendectomy in a patient with undiagnosed Crohn’s disease.

We present a case of a 60-year-old male patient presented with bilateral inguinal swelling associated with urinary hesitancy and intermittency. He had undergone transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair for a left inguinal hernia 8 years ago. CT scan confirmed the presence of a bilateral hernia with the bladder herniating bilaterally. He underwent an elective bilateral open Lichtenstein tension-free mesh repair.

We present a case of appendicitis within a De Garengeot hernia. The patient presented to the emergency department with 4 days of worsening abdominal pain. Computed tomography examination revealed an inflamed appendix within a femoral hernia. The patient underwent appendectomy and repair of the femoral defect. Pathological examination was consistent with acute appendicitis. De Garengeot hernia is a rare phenomenon, with less than 5% of femoral hernias containing the appendix and 0.08% to 0.13% containing an incarcerated acute appendicitis.

Conclusion There is a paucity of reports describing simultaneous appendicitis and cecal perforation within an Amyand's hernia. In our case, ileocecectomy and Bassini hernia repair with close follow-up led to a favorable outcome.

CONCLUSION Full preoperative workup for a femoral hernia often fails to diagnose the presence of the Appendix within the hernia. It is important to have a high clinical suspicion for a de Garengeot’s hernia in patients with incarcerated or strangulated right femoral hernias.

CONCLUSION Any case of acute abdomen causing high intra-abdominal pressure could potentially cause further herniation of an existing paraesophageal hernia, resulting in acute compromised respiratory function. In patients known to have a paraesophageal hernia, similar cases should be suspected if the patient presents with acute breathing difficulties.

Conclusions Inguinal hernias caused by mucinous ascites and tumor were definitively treated by cytoreductive surgery plus HIPEC. Extraction of tumor and peritoneum from the inguinal canal facilitates fibrous closure of the hernia defect so that hernia recurrence was not observed.

CONCLUSION Although incisional hernia of the colon after appendectomy is extremely rare and preoperative diagnosis by physical examination is difficult, CT is a useful method to make the correct diagnosis, avoiding unnecessary invasive intervention, particularly in patients with an unusual abdominal wall mass.

CONCLUSION Although rare, the finding of a strangulated appendix within a femoral hernia represents a challenge. Here we present a case that may guide the surgeon who faces a similar case in the future.

Conclusion This paper presents a case of a 84yo female with De Garengeot's hernia that was submitted to a correction using the De Oliveira's technic. A low cost technic with great results without use of polypropylene mesh.
