Traumatic abdominal wall hernia (TAWH) is a rare clinical entity in terms of aetiology. It occurs following a blunt abdominal injury with energy high enough to cause disruption of the musculoaponeurotic layer but not the elastic skin layer. It is often associated with underlying intra-abdominal injuries, which can be diagnosed either clinically or radiologically. We report a case of TAWH in a young man with associated large bowel transection, which remained undiagnosed in the preoperative period owing to its masked features...

INTRODUCTION: Traumatic abdominal wall hernia is a rare but serious diagnosis resulting from blunt abdominal trauma. The clinical diagnosis is not usually straightforward and the hernia is often discovered at the time of the surgical exploration for intra-abdominal injuries or by imaging studies. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 25-year-old obese, restraint, male patient was the victim of a high-speed road traffic accident. Among other injuries, he showed extensive skin maceration and bruising over the lower abdomen and flanks upon presentation, however he did not need any surgical intervention...

In this paper we report the autopsy findings of a long-term warfarinized 60-year-old man who died unexpectedly 2 days after undergoing laparoscopic transabdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) inguinal hernia repair. In his medical records it was stated that the perioperative and postoperative period was uneventful with no sign of bleeding and he was discharged the day after surgery. Autopsy revealed massive bleeding in the pre-peritoneal space at the surgery site and a massive left inguinal canal hematoma spreading through the spermatic cord to the left scrotum...

Traumatic abdominal wall hernia after blunt trauma is a rare entity. They can easily be overlooked in patients who have multiple trauma, as its signs and symptoms may be variable due to the presence of multiple injuries. Imaging with computed tomography or ultrasound confirms the diagnosis as well as identifying any associated injuries. Although surgery is the standard treatment for traumatic abdominal wall hernias, there is no consensus on the early or late repair of the defect. Some authors recommend early surgical intervention in order to avoid the risk of intra-abdominal organ injury, incarceration, and strangulation...

BACKGROUND: Defects in the abdominal wall of horses have high relapse rate. This is mainly in lateral eventrations and hernias caused by trauma from kicks of other horses or installation structures. The eventration region normally becomes swollen and there may be complications due to intestinal loop incarceration. The surgical treatment, consisting of reconstruction of the abdominal wall, frequently require biological or synthetic materials for the reinforcement of the suture line and tension support...

Trauma laparotomy after blunt abdominal trauma is conventionally indicated for patients with features of hemodynamic instability and peritonitis to achieve control of hemorrhage and control of spillage. In addition, surgery is clearly indicated for the repair of posttraumatic diaphragmatic injury with herniation. Some other indications for laparotomy have been presented and discussed. Five patients with blunt abdominal injury who underwent laparotomy for nonroutine indications have been presented. These patients were hemodynamically stable and had no overt signs of peritonitis...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic abdominal hernia is rare and difficult to diagnose from physical symptoms. PATIENT: A 60-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency department with complaints of vomiting after falling off a bicycle and hitting her abdomen against one of the handlebars 2 days earlier. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated abdominal wall hernia from blunt trauma to the left upper abdomen. The patient underwent exploratory laparotomy, and the herniated bowel loop was not found to be perforated or gangrenous...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic diaphragmatic rupture and traumatic abdominal wall hernia are two well-described but rare clinical entities associated with blunt thoracoabdominal injuries. To the best of our knowledge, the combination of these two clinical entities as a result of a motor vehicle accident has not been previously reported. CASE PRESENTATION: A 32-year-old Indian man was brought to our emergency department after being involved in a road traffic accident. He described a temporary loss of consciousness and had multiple tender bruises at his right upper anterior abdominal wall and left lumbar region...

BACKGROUND: Because of its uncommon nature and a lack of comprehensive literature, abdominal wall hernias caused by blunt trauma continue to present a management dilemma. This study was performed to identify the incidence of associated injuries, the need for urgent operative intervention, and recurrence rates after hernia repair. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients diagnosed with a traumatic abdominal wall hernia from January 2002 to December 2014 was performed...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic abdominal wall hernias (TAWH) have been recognized for more than a century since they were first reported by Selby (JAMA 47:1485-1486, 1906). They continue to be a rare diagnosis, encountered in approximately 1% blunt trauma admissions. The present study is a 10-year retrospective review of patients presenting with TAWH to a State Major Trauma Unit in Western Australia. We hypothesized that the timing of the repair of TAWH was dependent on the severity of the abdominal wall injury, as well as associated injuries, and in turn, this may affect patient outcomes...

Handlebar hernia is a rare traumatic abdominal wall hernia occurring after blunt trauma. We report a case of an adolescent patient with a traumatic rectus muscle abdominal wall hernia produced by injury with the bicycle handlebar. The skin abrasion caused by the trauma and a swelling reproduced after a Valsalva maneuver suggested the diagnosis. Traumatic wall hernias after blunt trauma should be repaired primarily to avoid complications.

Traumatic abdominal wall hernias are rare injuries despite the high incidence of blunt abdominal traumas. The mechanism of this injury includes a sudden increase in intra-abdominal pressure and extensive shear forces applied to the abdominal wall. We report a case of traumatic hernia of the anterior abdominal wall in a 42-year-old woman presented with blunt injury of the upper abdomen. She was attacked by a bull. She had a clinically evident abdominal fascial disruption with intact skin and was hemodynamically stable...

Traumatic abdominal wall hernias (TAWHs) are rare. Their diagnosis is mostly clinical and can be overlooked in the setting of trauma and distracting injuries or they can be misinterpreted as parietal hematomas. Associated lesions can influence decision making regarding time of operation and surgical technique. Our case highlights the management of a high-energy TAWH that associates a small bowel traumatic lesion. Surgical repair of TAWHs should follow general hernia repair principles. Further exploration of surgical options is necessary for a consensus to be reached...

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Surgical treatment of traumatic abdominal hernias is usually delayed for 2-3 months following injury. The residual defects are then repaired by herniorrhaphy or mesh herniorrhaphy. OBJECTIVE: To describe the outcome following herniorrhaphy (without a mesh) within 21 days of initial injury to repair external traumatic lateral abdominal hernias in horses and mules. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive case series. METHODS: Twenty-two cases were included...

Traumatic abdominal wall hernia (TAWH) is rare despite the high prevalence of blunt abdominal trauma. Bullhorn hernia occurs as a result of a direct blow to the abdominal wall by the horn of a bull, which disrupts the muscles and fascia and leads to hernia formation. We report a rare case of bullhorn TAWH in a 70-year-old patient who presented with swelling at the left lumbar region. The patient was managed by immediate surgical intervention. A surgeon must have high index of suspicion for the diagnosis of this condition as missed hernias in this setting pose a high risk of strangulation and gangrene...

Acute traumatic abdominal wall hernia (TAWH) is a rare type of hernia that occurs after a low- or high-velocity impact of the abdominal wall against a blunt object. With few cases reported, a consensus in diagnosis and management has not been established in the literature. A systematic review of the literature for adult cases of traumatic abdominal wall hernia due to blunt abdominal trauma was undertaken. All original articles were reviewed and data were compiled and tabulated qualitatively. Diagnostic imaging modalities and their reported description of the abdominal wall hernia were detailed correlated with the laparotomy findings...
