Abstract

An internal hernia is any protrusion of a solid organ or a hollow viscus through a defect within the abdominal cavity. Paraduodenal hernias are rare, but are the most common variety of internal hernias. We present a rare case of a left sided paraduodenal hernia in a 26 years old otherwise healthy male who presented in emergency department with intermittent colicky upper abdominal pain. Left paraduodenal hernia was diagnosed pre operatively in a computer tomography scan. Hence patient was offered a laparoscopic repair. Our search via online search engines revealed very few case reports of Paraduodenal hernias which were repaired laparoscopically. We believe that in expert hands, paraduodenal hernias should be managed with laparoscopic technique as it significantly reduces morbidity and hospital stay.
