Adriaan van den Spiegel (1578–1625) was a Flemish anatomist and physician. He was one of the most prominent anatomists at the University of Padua during the 17th century and became professor of anatomy and surgery there in 1619. He was privileged to have two of the most accomplished anatomists of that period, Fabricius ab Aquapendente and Iulius Casserius, as his teachers. His anatomical works were published after his death by his pupil Bucretius and his son‐in‐law Liberalis Crema, with…

His ability to integrate and synthesize information set him apart from his contemporaries, and his anatomo-clinical method was a major breakthrough in the history of medicine as it helped physicians to diagnose a disease, analyse the prognosis of that disease and prepare a management protocol for the same.

Both laparoscopic and open repair approaches are validated by current guidelines with lesser postoperative complications and shorter hospital stay in favour of minimally invasive surgery, regardless of the technique used.


The Anatomical School of Padua
The most important anatomist of this century is Giovanni Battista Morgagni (1682–1771), whose masterpiece De Sedibus et Causis Morborum per Anatomen Indagatis (1761) is a landmark contribution that is viewed as the beginning of modern pathologic anatomy.

Giulio Cesare Casseri (1552– 1616), whose name was Latinized into Iulius Casserius, was born in Piacenza; therefore, the nickname Piacentino (Placentinus) was often used. According to Sterzi (1910),
Spigelian Hernia: Surgical Anatomy, Embryology, and Technique of Repair
Spigelian hernia (1–2% of all hernias) is the protrusion of preperitoneal fat, peritoneal sac, or organ(s) through a congenital or acquired defect in the spigelian aponeurosis, and repair consists of open anterior herniorraphy, using direct muscle approximation, mesh, and prostheses.
