Interparietal hernias, also known as interstitial hernias (alternative plural: herniae) are a general category of ventral abdominal wall hernias, defined by the occurrence of the hernia sac located between the layers of the anterior abdominal wall 1-4. They are commonly incisional hernias and most Spigelian hernias are of this type.
Rectus sheath hernias are a subtype of the interparietal hernias.
History and etymology
Interparietal hernias were first described by the Danish physician, mathematician and theologian Thomas Bartholin in 1661 4,5.
