    Spigelian hernia?

    Sharon – Indeed the image (070, series 12 in the upper right corner) you have shown looks like a Spigelian hernia. I can’t tell for sure due to the inability to see the whole scan. Sounds like you would clearly benefit from a more complete evaluation by a general surgeon interested in hernia repair. You can find one on the Americas Hernia Society website. Just type in the state and click search. If you’re in San Diego, Garth Jacobsen and Santiago Horgan at UCSD would be good choices. Mention your referral from Hernia Talk, and feel free to use my name as well. Be sure to bring a copy of the scan and the report to the surgeon. I would typically approach these laparoscopically, and use an intraperitoneal mesh for repair. Hope this helps! DE
