Abstract

Spontaneous rupture of the abdominal wall hernia is very rare and usually occurs in incisional and recurrent groin hernias. Here, we report the case of rupture of a large incisional hernia with the evisceration of small bowel in a 56-year-old female. This surgical emergency was successfully managed using the current standard tension-free prosthetic mesh.
