DIAZ, Ramón; RODRIGUEZ, Francisco; BUSTOS, Álvaro  and  ALFARO, Jorge. Laparoscopic Surgery of a Garengeot's Hernia: A rare presentation of a crural hernia. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2016, vol.68, n.6, pp.446-448. ISSN 0718-4026.

Background: Garengeot's hernia is a rare presentation of a femoral hernia. Case report: We report a case of a 64 year-old female patient complaining of right lower abdominal pain. She was studied by CT-Scan that showed an inflammatory process in right lower cuadrant. We made an exploratory laparoscopy and found the cecal appendix in the crural defect. We did a laparoscopic appendectomy and crural hernia repair with mesh. To our knowledge, this is the third laparoscopic case published in the world and the first of Chile.

Keywords : Crural hernia; Garengeot hernia; Acute appendicitis.
