Drain site eviscerations have been reported as a rare complication following abdominal surgery. An 82-year-old women was diagnosed with carcinoma stomach and underwent laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomy. A few hours following removal of the duodenal stump drain, she developed small bowel evisceration through the drain site. It was successfully managed with immediate bedside release of fascial constriction followed by definitive repair later. Although herniations and eviscerations via larger drain sites have been reported, eviscerations from small laparoscopic port sites used for drains are rare. Here, we report the first case of small bowel evisceration with strangulation through a 5-mm port site.
