Resumen

ALLAMAND T., Juan F. et al. Intestinal obstruction caused by obturator hernia: Case series. Rev. cir. [online]. 2019, vol.71, n.2, pp.173-177. ISSN 2452-4557.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s2452-45492019000200173.

Objective:

3 cases of intestinal obstruction that resulted in diagnosis of obturator hernia, their management and a brief international literature review are presented.

Material and methods:

Discussion of the presentation, images, and management. In all cases surgery was performed the same day from the diagnosis of intestinal obstruction and confirmation of obturator hernia. The management of the hernia and it's content was adjusted to each patient's situation.

Results:

Our 3 patients, when reviewed retrospectively, had the classic presentations and images of obturator hernia. All of them had a favourable evolution with an early discharge and no complications on follow up.

Discussion:

Our 3 cases had clinical presentations and imaging studies that correlated well with international literature.

Conclusion:

Obturator hernia is an infrequent pathology, but appears in a particular type of patient and with classic presentation. Axial computed tomography is an important tool and usually makes the diagnosis previously to surgical exploration. It is important to consider this diagnosis when being faced with patients with intestinal obstruction.
