Five-Millimeter Port Site Hernia: A Rare Case

Daria Abolghasemi, Julia Arena, Andrew Camerota


With advanced technology and improved training of surgeons, laparoscopic and other minimally invasive surgical techniques have become the standard of treatment for many general surgical and gynecological diseases. As with any surgical procedure, there are complications that can be directly attributed to the surgical technique. We present a case of an 84-year-old female who presented with symptoms of small bowel obstruction secondary to a 5-mm port site hernia (PSH) 1 week post-laparoscopic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for ovarian cysts.
