Abstract

We present a 33-year-old woman with a history of radical hysterectomy and pelvic radiation who developed a nonreducible high anterior vaginal wall bulge, postoperative pelvic pain, and dyspareunia. Dynamic MRI revealed herniation of the omentum into the vesico-vaginal space. The incarcerated hernia was repaired transvaginally, and the patient's symptoms improved.
