Ragazzi R., Vaccaro R., Pace G., Cremona S., Scrofani M., Buttafuoco A., Ragazzi S., Di Pietro S., Pluchino D.
The authors have treated in the last two years five female patients with anterior-lateral hernia of the abdomen otherwise known as Spigelian hernia. The anatomical site, predisposing factors, pathophysiology, symptomatology and the difficulty to make a diagnosis are mentioned, and these five rare cases observed are described. In two cases there were strangulation of the hernia and bowel occlusion. The conclusion is drawn that a timely surgical intervention in the treatment of Spigelian hernia can lead to successful results without complications.
