The eventration generally are painless and quite reducible.
The eventration present like a curve or masses localised on old abdominal scars.
It can contain small intestine or large intestine, sometimes both at the same time.
The progressive development of the bag and the heaviness of its contents cause embarrassment which can become invalidating.
A eventration which becomes painful can become complicated of an obstruction of the bowels (the intestine is wedged in the hernia) with risk of intestinal perforation
The signs of occlusion are the stop of gases and the matters, sometimes associated with vomiting.
A surgical operation is then necessary in urgency.
Obstruction of the bowels (strangled eventration)
Intestinal perforation (caused to become gangrenous)
Respiratory disorders of the subject having a large eventration
Two cases of figure:
It involves an abdominal paradoxical breathing with secondary respiratory insufficiency.
Permanently the diaphragm is slackened and the Pressure will intra abdominal is low.
The internal organs are contained in a bag péritonéal out of the abdomen (second abdomen of Goni Moreno).
The surgical cure is delicate because the rehabilitation of these internal organs causes a respiratory imbalance.
