Handlebar hernia: ultrasonography-aided diagnosis



Handlebar hernia: ultrasonography-aided diagnosis



Hernia 6(1): 36-38



Traumatic hernia resulting from blunt impalement of the abdominal wall, known as "handlebar hernia," is seldom addressed in the surgical literature, with only 28 previously reported cases. We describe our experience with this rare traumatic hernia diagnosed by physical examination and confirmed by ultrasonography. Published reports suggest handlebar hernia's potential for serious underlying injury and the diagnostic importance of computed tomographic scanning. The case presented here demonstrates the value of bedside ultrasonography in diagnosis confirmation and surgical planning for this condition.
