Amyand's Hernia: Case Report of a Rare Hernia
Asian Journal of Research in Surgery,
The presence of a vermiform appendix in an inguinal hernia sac is known as a Amyand’s hernia. It’s an atypical and rare disease. The diagnosis is usually made intraoperatively. The management of this type of hernia should be tailored to each patient according to their clinical presentation and often poses problems of repair due to the infection risk associated with the appendectomy.
Surgeons should have a complete knowlege of Amyand’s hernia treatement modalities. It’s an imperative condition for a good repair without complications and with avoidance of recurrence.
Here, we describe a patient with an Amyand hernia who underwent appendectomy along with a mesh repair of his hernia.
