Title : Unilateral dorsal (lumbar) abdominal hernia in a cat
Authors : Z. BOZKAN TATLI, C.G. BELLEK, E.D. AVCI, Z. BILGEN SEN, M SARIERLER
Summary : A 3-year-old female mix breed cat was presented with complaint of swelling on the lumbar area. Clinical examination revealed a lumbar hernia and any other abnormality was not detected as a result of the laboratory, radiographic and ultrasonographic examinations. Surgical treatment was decided. There were two small muscle tears in addition to the main hernial defect on the right lateral abdominal side and peritoneum was disrupted. After surgical debridement of limited infected areas and adhesions, the hernial defects were sutured, and then double layered polypropylene mesh was placed over the muscle sutures. Bandage around the abdomen could be removed one day after surgery relying on that the polypropylene mesh will be enough to support sutures, because the cat with bandage was very uncomfortable. To the author's knowledge, lumbar hernia which small intestine herniated subcutaneously into the dorsal region has not been reported previously in cats and lumbar hernia should be remembered as a mass lesion of the dorsal region.
