BERNAL EUSSE, Alberto; RESTREPO MOLINA, Rodrigo; BERNAL CUARTAS, Carolina  and  CASTANO LLANO, Rodrigo. Two cases of congenital foramina in the broad ligament of the uterus with small bowel hernias and reversible intestinal distress. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.1, pp.56-61. ISSN 0120-9957.

We report two cases of congenital foramina in the broad ligament through which segments of the small intestine passed producing intestinal obstruction with reversible bowel distress. Surgical, traumatic and infectious causes that could simulate congenital intraperitoneal bands were ruled out.

Keywords : Broad ligament of the uterus; parametrium; internal hernia; intestinal obstruction; congenital.
