Can trauma in rib area develop into a hernia?
Yes. Trauma can cause hernia to develop.
Thanks for posting your query.
After the removal of 12th rib, both the scar area and a severe trauma can cause a hernia to develop in the area.
A trauma can cause the muscles in the back to separate and a rise in intra abdominal pressure can cause a hernia to develop.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
