Additional types of hernias include abdominal hernias like the epigastric which occurs above the navel and the spigelian
which are found on either side of the lower abdomen.
Approximately 80% of all abdominal-wall hernias are inguinal, 5% are femoral, and the other 15% include traumatic, incisional, Spigelian, obturator, lumbar, and paraumbilical types.
Spigelian hernias occur along the linea semilunaris, which is a continuation of the aponeuroses of the layered lateral abdominal muscles and the rectus abdominis sheath (Figure 12).
Spigelian hernia: CT findings and clinical relevance.
Meckel diverticulum is also described in association with inguinal (Littre hernia) and Spigelian
hernias, intussusception, inversion resulting in acute and chronic gastro-intestinal blood loss, carcinoid and other rare tumors, and nesidioblastosis to name a few unusual affiliations.
They included transperitoneal tension-free polypropylene mesh repairs for inguinal and sciatic hernias, composite mesh for ventral and spigelian
hernias, and total extraperitoneal polypropylene repairs for obturator hernias.
Other types include incisional, umbilical, spigelian, lumbar, and epigastric hernias.
Spigelian hernias project through the spigelian fascia, which is located at the lateral edge of the rectus abdominis muscles.
At Beverly Hills Hernia Center, those suffering from a Spigelian hernia will find effective diagnosis and treatment that leads to rapid recovery.
That's why, for those suffering from the notoriously difficult to detect spigelian hernia, the expertise of Dr.
While most hernias thrive just below layers of fat, a Spigelian hernia is notable for occurring in a couple of layers of muscle, within the abdominal wall.
There are several types of external hernias, including but not limited to inguinal, femoral, umbilical, ventral, obturator, lumbar, and Spigelian
hernias, all of which occur at points of structural weakness in the abdominal or pelvic wall musculature.
