Abstract

Trocar site herniation is a rare complication following laparoscopic surgery. We report a case of small bowel herniation through 5mm port site following laparoscopic myomectomy. A 36-year-old lady underwent laparoscopic myomectomy. On the fourth postoperative day she developed features of intestinal obstruction. Further evaluation with CT scan showed herniation of a loop of small bowel through the 5mm port site in right iliac fossa. Surgical exploration of the port site revealed a herniated loop of viable small bowel. The enlarged facial defect was closed after reduction of the bowel. Patient recovered uneventfully. Bowel herniation through 5mm port site is a rare complication which requires prompt diagnosis and immediate treatment to avoid morbidity.
