Abstract:   (2512 Views)
Incisional herniation after appendectomy is a rare condition, occurring in less than 0.12% of operations for appendicitis. A 46-year-old woman referred with a hernia at the site of a McBurney incision with the history of Appendectomy for acute appendicitis 6 years ago. There was evidence of a long segment of the colon (possibly cecum), a significant increase in colon thickness and inflammatory changes in the abdominal wall, as well as in the mesenteric fat with possible adhesion as a fixed bowel loop in the place of the previous laparotomy. The diagnosis of interstitial incisional hernia was made and the patient was scheduled for the surgery. The patient had no complaints of pain after the operation, and in follow up courses, there was no recurrence of a hernia.
