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.
Key Words: Lumbar hernia; Traumatic abdominal hernia; Blunt abdominal trauma
