La mia nuova descrizione qui!

An acute appendicitis in the context of a De Garengeot’s hernia is a very rare event and represents a hard challenge for
surgeons. As only few cases have been reported in literature, there is no consensus about its optimal surgical strategy of
treatment. Here we present two consecutive cases of female patients presenting an uncommon acute appendicitis in a
femoral hernia treated with a combined laparoscopic/open technique.
