The caudate lobe, also called spigelian
lobe seems to be different from the rest of the liver in that it behaves in a paradoxical manner, particularly in cases of cirrhosis.
hernia is a rare type of ventral hernias with nonspecific symptoms and signs.
Diagnoses included inguinal, femoral, Spigelian
, and umbilical hernias.
Epigastric, suprapubic, umbilical, port site, Spigelian
The Bahraini girl was born with a Spigelian
Hernia at King Hamad University Hospital (KHUH).
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.
The main reason of ventral hernias can be prior surgery (incisional) or spontaneously (umbilical epigastric spigelian
or lumbar hernias).
Ventral hernias can develop as a result of prior surgery (incisional) or spontaneously (umbilical, epigastric, Spigelian
, or lumbar hernias).
The rare spigelian
hernia occurs at the lateral edge of the rectus abdominus muscle (Spiegel's line).
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.
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.
