Groin hernias are common occurrences and usually present with a lump, bulge, and/or pain. Hernias that present with an obvious lump or bulge are often diagnosed clinically and infrequently require imaging (except to look at the contralateral side preoperatively). On the other hand, hernias that pres

TLDR
This article provides illustrative images and videos on the use of sonography for diagnosis of abdominal wall hernias and a variety of pitfalls that may present clinically as pseudohernias.
Sonographic Assessment of a Spigelian Hernia
TLDR
The case report highlights important diagnostic features for differentiating a spigelian hernia from other forms of abdominal wall hernia so that proper diagnosis and surgical repair can be accomplished.

Imaging of the inguinal canal in children.
TLDR
The relevant embryology of the inguinal canal is reviewed, abdominal and scrotal conditions that involve the ingUinal region are discussed, and associated pathology is illustrated.
Complicated, Complete, Indirect, Irreducible Right Inguinoscrotal Hernia
TLDR
A patient with an inguinal hernia that had not been repaired and progressed into a life-threatening, complicated inguinoscrotal hernia was diagnosed with a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), identified sonographically.
Usefulness of dynamic ultrasound in the diagnosis of epigastric herniation of stomach
TLDR
In this case, dynamic ultrasound provided added value over computed tomography by clearly demonstrating stomach passing from the abdominal cavity to enter into the hernia sac and it is reported for both its rarity and interest.
Diagnosis of a Strangulated Laparoscopic Incisional Hernia with Point-of-Care Ultrasonography
TLDR
This is the first case report to describe the use of point-of-care ultrasound for the diagnosis of a strangulated incisional port hernia at the bedside, and finds herniated akinetic loops of bowel through her laparoscopic incision.
US of the Inguinal Canal: Comprehensive Review of Pathologic Processes with CT and MR Imaging Correlation.
TLDR
Ultrasonography has a fundamental role in the initial examination of patients who present with symptoms indicating abnormalities of the inguinal canal and is often the modality initially used to detect neoplasms arising from or invading the IC.
Ultrasound of the Groin: Techniques, Pathology, and Pitfalls.
TLDR
The hip joint is evaluated for effusion, synovitis, and labral abnormalities, and the muscles and tendons, including the common aponeurosis at the pubic symphysis, are evaluated for tendinosis and tears.
Perioperative Radiologic Evaluation of Patients with Difficult Abdominal Wall Defects
TLDR
Preoperative imaging aids in establishing the diagnosis, especially in patients with a large body habitus or in whom the presence of tenderness precludes an adequate clinical examination, and computed tomography are valuable in the detection of recurrence.

Ventral hernia repair: a study of current practice
TLDR
The main indication for repair was pain, while 12 patients presented acutely with incarceration or strangulation, and the most common method of repair was sutured, followed by mesh and Mayo repair, and there was no correlation between use of mesh and hernia size.

Abdominal hernias remain a common and vexing problem for both clinicians and radiologists. Unlike inguinal hernias, which are usually diagnosed clinically and are amenable to minor surgical repair,
Imaging of abdominal hernias.
TLDR
With abdominal imaging modalities, a variety of abdominal hernias can be confidently diagnosed and complications such as incarceration, bowel obstruction, volvulus, and strangulation can be demonstrated with radiologic examination.
Sonography of the anterior abdominal wall.
TLDR
The improved penetrating power of high frequency, high resolution transducers has made possible routine examination of the anterior abdominal wall and results compared with anatomic findings at surgery are compared.
