52 - Amyand Hernia & Littre Hernia

A sliding hernia (usually indirect inguinal in location) is a hernia in which a part of the wall of the hernia sac is formed by an intra-abdominal viscus (usually colon, sometimes bladder).

In a Richter hernia, part (rather than the entire circumference) of the bowel wall is trapped.

A Littré hernia is one that contains a Meckel diverticulum.

An Amyand hernia is one that contains the appendix.
