Traumatic abdominal wall hernia is a rare condition that can follow any blunt trauma to the abdomen. Generally there has been an increase in the incidence of blunt abdominal trauma, although the case of traumatic abdominal wall hernias are rare. Probably due to the elasticity of the abdominal wall for resisting the shear forces generated by a traumatic impacts. In this case, we are reporting 1 rare case, diagnosed as an abdominal wall hernia associated with herniation of bowel loops due to blunt trauma without intra-abdominal injury including peritoneum.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The occurrence of traumatic hernia is rare. However, traumatic lumbar hernias are the most frequently occurring traumatic hernias. Superior lumbar hernias occur more frequently than inferior lumbar hernias, but for anatomical reasons, among traumatic lumbar hernias, inferior lumbar hernias occur more frequently than superior lumbar hernias. Repair of a lumbar hernia is very difficult. Mesh fixation to the bony part and general weakness of surrounding tissue make repair of a lumbar hernia tricky. A traumatic lumbar hernia was repaired using transfascial fixation around the defect to secure the mesh. This technique is another choice for a lumbar hernia technique.
