Abdominal herniation associated with bullhorn injury as a separate entity from traumatic abdominal wall hernias
modalities of treatment currently utilized for this rare condition. A omprehensive online English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French language medical literature search was done using various electronic search atabases. Di?erent search terms including MeSH related to bullhorn-injury associated injuries including abdominal wall hernias were used. An advanced search was further conducted by combining all the search felds in abstracts, keywords, and titles. We summarized the data from the earched articles and found 12 cases who underwent emergency or elective herniorrhaphy with or without the use of mesh. We have proposed a treatment algorithm for such cases in light of the present era of laparoscopy and propose the usage of the term “bullhorn-injury associated traumatic hernia” for such cases. We present here the frst most omprehensive discussion of all such cases reported till date.
