Further comments on the paper

Comments: This case report details the management of a rare traumatic left parailiac hernia in an 18-year-old female following a motor vehicle accident. The strategies described in this case report of a successful traumatic hernia repair hold significance as the cumulative literature is lacking data on the treatment of traumatic hernias and there is no consensus as to the ideal timing and method of repair. Traumatic abdominal wall hernias are a rare event and occur in less than 1% of blunt traumas. The patient in this case had an interesting and complicated post-trauma course due to multiple intra-abdominal and orthopedic injuries requiring timely management and further delaying operative hernia repair.
