Spigelian Hernia

A rare occurrence, a Spigelian hernia is a type of ventral hernia that develops where the rectus muscles, or “six pack” muscles,” and the lateral oblique muscles meet. This type of hernia may also be referred to as a lateral hernia, and it commonly occurs in patients over 50 years old. In addition, spigelian hernias are more likely to develop on the right side of the abdomen.

If you suspect you have a hernia, or you have a protruding bulge near the groin or abdomen, it is important to seek immediate evaluation at the Los Angeles Hernia Center. Untreated hernias can lead to irreversible damage and the development of life-threatening complications, so time is of the essence.
