Predisposing factors for IHFW include an enlarged foramen of Winslow, a long small-bowel mesentery, a persistent ascending mesocolon, an elongated right hepatic lobe, a change in intra-abdominal pressure, and a large, mobile gallbladder. The incarcerated organs of IHFW in order of frequency are small bowel (63%), caecum, distal ileum and ascending colon (30%), transverse colon (6%) and gallbladder (1%).
