Transmesenteric Hernia in a Peripartum Patient: A Case Report

June 14, 2021 Medicine and Medical 0

 Adult intestinal obstruction due to a congenital transmesenteric hernia is a rather uncommon occurrence. The intestinal loops are strangulated once they protrude through the defects in the mesentery in this type of internal hernia. Following computed CT findings and increased pancreatic enzymes, a patient who presented to the emergency department with persistent stomach pain after an emergency caesarean section was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis. Her pain was out of proportion to her diagnosis of pancreatitis, and her health swiftly deteriorated, demanding multiorgan treatment. After reimaging, a blocked transmesenteric hernia was identified. The patient required immediate surgical intervention. Internal hernia should be one of the differential diagnoses for any abnormal acute abdomen, and early management can save lives.
