PMID:  22121415     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
While umbilical hernias frequently occur during pregnancy, the few reported cases of uterine or fibroid incarceration in ventral hernias during pregnancy all involved incisional abdominal wall defects from prior laparotomies and Cesarean sections; none involved umbilical hernias. We discuss the case of a 42-year-old well-developed, well-nourished grand multiparous woman (G8P7) with a huge umbilical hernia containing a 38-week gravid uterus, as well as her management and the avoidance of known complications that have occurred in similar incisional hernia cases. Successful pregnancy outcomes can occur in cases of pregnancies in ventral hernias, even in resource-poor settings that have Cesarean section capabilities.
