ABSTRACT

After analyzing 690 hernioplasties performed during the period between 1960 and 1994, the authors found three cases of Spiegel's hernia, all diagnosed in patients that had undergone prior abdominoplasty. They suggest that plication of Spiegel's "linea semilunaris" associated with classical abdominoplasry may comribllle to the prevention ofSpiegeliall Hernia, since this plication reinforces a weak point in the anterolateral abdominal wall.

Keywords: Hernia, Spiegel's Linea Semilunaris Plication, Abdominoplasty

 

RESUMO

Os autores, após análise de 690 hernioplastias no período entre 1960 e 1994, encontraram três casos de Hérnia de Spiegel, todos diagnosticados em pacientes que já haviam se submetido a abdominoplastia prévia. Com isso, sugerem que a plicatura da linha semilunar de Spiegel associada à abdominoplastia clássica possa contribuir como método preventivo no aparecimento da hérnia, uma vez que a plicatura reforça um ponto débil da parede ântero-lateral do abdome.

Palavras-chave: Hérnia, Plicatura da Linha Semilunar de Spiegel, Abdominoplastia
