Case Discussion

High resolution ultrasound of the anterior abdominal wall reveals a crumpled mesh (wavy echogenic structure) with minimal fluid collection around it which is leading to a sinus tract opening on the anterior abdominal wall (white arrow).

High Resolution ultrasonography can be used both for primary diagnosis of inguinal region and complications at the surgery site.
