Incarcerated transomental hernias through a defect in the gastrocolic ligament are extremely rare. A woman aged 51 who had upper abdominal pain for 5 hours was admitted to the emergency department of Jeju National University Hospital. Abdominal computed tomography images revealed a protrusion of a jejunal segment into a lesser sac (omental bursa) with mild wall thickening, decreased perfusion of bowel wall and perivascular fatty infiltrations in its mesentery. These findings suggested an incarcerated transomental hernia into the lesser sac (omental bursa). She underwent a diagnostic laparoscopy immediately. On the operative finding, there was a defect about 4 cm long in gastrocolic ligament and the jejunal segment which was about 60 cm long and its mesentery were herniated through the defect. A reduction of the jejunal segment and repair of the defect were totally done via laparoscopy. She was discharged on postoperative day 3 uneventfully. Herein we reports about an experience of a spontaneous incarcerated transomental hernia of small intestine through a defect in gastrocolic ligament and its successful laparoscopic surgical treatment with a review of domestic literatures.
