Abstract:

Traumatic abdominal wall hernia (TAWH) is a rare entity, Common in children from bicycle handle bar injury. We present a case of large TAWH following Road Traffic Accident in 55 yrs obese male patient. It was managed by mesh repair. Emergency surgical management is preferred due to high incidence of intra abdominal injuries. But if the patient presents after some days delayed repair should be undertaken. TAWH is rare but should be considered in RTA or blunt trauma to abdomen if patient presents with abdominal wall swelling.

Key words: Traumatic abdominal wall hernia (TAWH), Emergency surgery, Delayed repair, Mesh repair, Post operative bulge.
