Spontaneous transmesenteric hernia: a rare cause of small bowel obstruction in an adult
AbstractThe authors report a case of spontaneous transmesenteric hernia with strangulation in an adult. Transmesenteric hernia (TMH) is a rare cause of small bowel obstruction and is seldom diagnosed preoperatively, and most TMHs in adults are related to predisposing factors, such as previous surgery, abdominal trauma, and peritonitis. TMH are more likely to develop volvulus and strangulation or ischemia. A brief review of etiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment is discussed.
