About Ventral Hernia With Obstruction/Gangrene

Ventral hernia with obstruction/gangrene occurs when the intestines or tissues in the abdomen push out, causing a blockage (obstruction) in the intestines and possibly destroys the tissues (gangrene). A ventral hernia affects the area of the abdomen just above the navel, and it forms when an area of the abdominal wall is weakened. A ventral hernia may cause an obstruction in the intestines, which prevents them from functioning correctly. As the intestines remain blocked, tissues may die because due to lack of blood, resulting in gangrene. Symptoms of ventral hernia with obstruction/gangrene include a painful lump sticking out of the abdominal area that may turn dark in color, become numb, and start to smell bad from gangrene.
