Traumatic Abdominal Wall Hernias (TAWH) are an uncommon clinical entity, accounting for less than 0.2% of all blunt trauma injuries. Due to its low incidence and high risk for associated injuries there is no consensus on their management and best method of repair. We report a case of a 46-year-old male with a delayed presentation of a traumatic hernia through a defect of the left iliac wing. To our knowledge, we describe the first robot-assisted transabdominal preperitoneal repair of a traumatic hernia with a pelvic fracture. We present our operative approach and an overview of the literature.
