    Abstract

    Laparoscopic prostatectomy has been accepted as an appropriate treatment for prostate cancer because of the shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery. We present a rare complication of groin hernia with incarceration and necrosis of small bowel following laparoscopic prostatectomy. Occult hernias and small fascia defects may not always be apparent pre-operatively, but extension of pneumoperitoneal insufflation to extraperitoneal compartments should alert the surgeon to the possible presence of such a defect.
