A Rare Presentation of Maydl’s Hernia

Spigelian hernias should be treated surgically because of the severity of symptoms and the risk of complications. Usually, the patient presents with intestinal obstruction of unknown cause, and the hernia is diagnosed at laparotomy. Strangulation is a serious complication and, if the intestine is involved, leads to peritonitis see Peritonitis and intra-abdominal abscesses which can be fatal.

Conclusions Maydl’s hernia although rare should be suspected in patients with large incarcerated hernia, with evidence of strangulation or peritonitis, or with viable loops of intestine in the hernia sac. The operative findings revealed a sliding Maydl’s hernia with an ischemic inner ileal loop and an adherent inflamed appendix. Incisional hernias increase in size with time and frequently become irreducible. The transversus abdominis aponeurosis extends medially from the semilunar line to the lateral edge of the rectus sheath.

This happens when there is an alternate double entry and double exit of gut loops into the hernia sac from a peritoneal cavity that is Entry, Exit-Entry, Exit that may be remembered as a 4E sequence of gut loops. The sac accompanies the spermatic cord along the inguinal canal towards the scrotum for a varying distance see below.

The obturator canal carries the obturator nerve and vessels. The deep inguinal ring was closed intraabdominally. A scrotal presentation can be mistaken for an acute hydrocoele, testicular torsion, or epididymoorchitis [ 56 ]. A review of cases.

Acknowledgment The authors acknowledge the final year medical students, Isabel Mulango and Derrick Awa, who contributed in the patient management perioperatively.

Para-umbilical hernias are treated surgically because of the risk of obstruction, strangulation and, rarely, excoriation and ulceration of the skin overlying the hernia. Ileo-colic invagination is the commonest variety, can lead to an ischemic segment and requires surgery. On examination, the bulge of a femoral hernia appears in the region of the saphenous opening.

The systemic manifestations are those of bowel obstruction and gangrene leading to serious fluid and electrolyte henia.

It is of historical interest that in Claudius Amyand removed the appendix of an year-old boy through a groin incision for a scrotal hernia, arguably the first appendicectomy to be performed although without the intention of curing appendicitis [ 5 ]. The patient, who typically is a middle-aged female, presents with diffuse aching pain in the area of the hernia, which is small and may not be palpable. They are nearly always found in males.


Herniorrhaphy aims to reduce the size of the femoral ring and is performed by inserting several sutures between the inguinal and hrenia ligaments, thereby effectively closing off the femoral canal. The mesh is cut to size, with two limbs encircling the cord at the deep ring, and is then sutured to the posterior wall behind the cord.

Hernias are either external or internal. On exploring the peritoneal cavity, a loop of ileum about 1 foot proximal from the ileo-caecal junction was adherent to the deep inguinal ring through which it was protruding outside.

The protruded bowel was irreducible with signs of obstruction. The case report did not require ethical clearance from the University of Buea Ethical Committee in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki as it was not a research involving human subjects.

A truss may be useful for uncomplicated hernias in elderly debilitated patients and in those who decline surgery, but is rarely effective in controlling the madyl. The incidence of IIH is approximately — per million male population. An IIH is prevented from appearing by applying pressure over the deep inguinal ring which lies just above the midpoint of the inguinal ligament because an IIH protrudes through the deep inguinal ring.

J Postgrad Med ; The classic operative procedure is a Mayo repair Mayo repair. Para-umbilical hernias occasionally become very large and contain transverse colon and small intestine. No treatment herniw be advised in debilitated patients who are not medically fit for surgery and who have uncomplicated hernias with minimal symptoms.

A hernia becomes obstructed when the neck is sufficiently narrow to occlude the lumen of the intestine contained within the sac.
