• Abstract

    When the vermiform appendix is inside the hernia sac, an uncommon kind of inguinal hernia known as Amyand's hernia (AH) occurs. Typically, an unintentional discovery discovered during surgery serves as the basis for the diagnosis. Only a tiny percentage of patients with inguinal hernias have AH, and even fewer experience problems with acute ischemia. The referral to general surgical services was due to an inguinal tumor located in the right lower quadrant of our 65-year-old male patient. There may be consequences from ischemia because this was not touch-sensitive. The appendix was removed by open hernioplasty. Treatment for type 1 AH, which this patient has, consists of mesh repair and hernial reduction. Despite not having acute appendicitis, our patient needed an appendectomy due to anatomical variation in their AH, which raised the possibility of hernial incarceration. Because of its size and adhesions inside the hernia, this treatment was also thought to be essential for preventing the recurrence of the hernia. This paper introduces a new method for handling the accidental finding of a type 1 AH. There are few treatment suggestions available for anatomic variations of the AH. The physical characteristics of AH may be included to overcome the drawbacks of the traditional Losanoff and Basson's AH classification methods for AH management and categorization. By using this method. Amyand's hernia occurs when a vermiform appendix is discovered inside an inguinal hernia sac. The objectives of this comprehensive investigation were to gather information on its occurrence, clinical picture, diagnosis, and treatment course.
