Abstract Share this page

Abstract The iliac crest is a common donor site for autogenous bone grafts. Among the reported complications, lumbar hernias occur infrequently with a reported incidence of 5\% to 9\%. Surgical repair is advocated secondary to the risk of incarceration or strangulation. Computed tomography is the diagnostic study of choice. Various transabdominal, retroperitoneal, and laparoscopic approaches have been described for the repair of lumbar hernias. We describe a case of successful lumbar incisional hernia repair after iliac crest bone graft harvesting that used prosthetic mesh.
