Keywords:Complicated umbilical port site hernia, Hernia management
With increase in the number of laparoscopic procedures being performed, the incidence of port site complications has also increased proportionately. Infection and port site hernia are the commonest of the complications. Port site hernias are more prone to complications in view of the irregularity and narrowness of the defect. A case of an incarcerated umbilical port site hernia is presented to highlight the complexity of the problem and the surgical challenge that it poses.
