Introduction

The presence of appendix vermiformis in inguinal hernia is known as Amyand hernia. Amyand hernia is a rare condition estimated to account for approximately 1% of all inguinal hernias. In our case we want to show our approach to incidental Amyand hernia.

Case Report

An 80-year-old male patient was received at urology service because of prostatic symptoms. There were comorbid factors like hypertension,chronic obstructive lung disease and geriatric age. On surgery with spinal anesthesia, surgeons invited us to evaluate his left inguinal hernia. We evaluated hernia and saw distal ileal segments, proximal right colonic segments and inflamme appendix at hernia defect. Because of appendix inflammation we performed appendectomy. Hernia was repaired with mesh. We put a drain at surgery area. At postoperative first day, the patient discharged with drain. The fifth day of post-surgery, the drain was pulled out. At the time of 1st and 3rd month check of the patient, there was no problem about surgery.

Discussion

Amyand hernia is one of the rare conditions encountered by the surgeon during hernia surgery. The surgeon must know the Rosanoff and Bassoon Classification of Amyand Hernia to successfully manage Amyand hernia surgery. The surgeon also must know the situation in which case an appendectomy should be performed and in which case the mesh should be used.

Keywords: Amyand Hernia, Appendectomy, Complication, Mesh.
