Answer

A strangulated hernia may be associated with the following:

  • Symptoms of an incarcerated hernia, combined with a toxic appearance
  • Possibility of systemic toxicity secondary to ischemic bowel
  • Probability of strangulation if pain and tenderness of an incarcerated hernia persist after reduction
