Abstract

Abstract Two unusual cases of transepiploic omental hernia are presented. Unlike most internal hernias, small bowel was not involved. Symptoms in both cases were atypical, and preoperative diagnosis was that of other intra-abdominal disease. The pathogenesis of internal hernias and some problems of treatment are discussed.
