Small bowel obstruction through a defect in the broad ligament is an uncommon, challenging entity and accounts for 4-7% of internal hernia. Preoperative diagnosis is generally difficult due to its vague clinical presentation. Furthermore, the presence of bilateral broad ligament defects is extremely rare, and reportedly, this condition has been described in only eight cases since 1950.

Herniation of the broad ligament… And the other side?

Strangulated herniation through a defect of the broad ligament of the uterus.

Past history in this case supported congenital defect of the broad ligament, and emergency laparotomy was performed due to bowel strangulating obstruction.

Strangulated hernia through a defect of the broad ligament and mobile cecum: a case report.

It is emphasized that hernia of the broad ligament should be added to the list of differential diagnosis for female patients presenting with an intestinal obstruction and early diagnosis and surgical repair reduce morbidity and mortality from strangulation.

Unexpected findings at diagnostic laparoscopy: caecal incarceration with concurrent appendicitis in a patient with bilateral broad ligament defects.

A 36-year-old woman with phocomelia presented with right iliac fossa pain and vomiting and an appendicectomy was performed, with herniation of the caecum and an inflamed appendix through the right-sided defect.

Long-term Outcomes of Robot-assisted Laparoscopic Rectopexy for Rectal Prolapse

Long-term results of robot-assisted laparoscopic rectopexy for total rectal prolapse are satisfying, and cost-effectiveness and functional results comparable with conventional laparoscopy are needed.
