Abstract: Background: Sonography is a significant noninvasive imaging modality to diagnose types of abdominal wall hernias. Ultrasound imaging could be effective in creating a diagnosis as well as determining the type of hernia and providing additional details like the contents of the hernia and how much of it can be reduced. These findings may influence surgical procedures and reconstruction. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this research was to identify the frequency of anterior abdominal wall hernias in Gujrat, Pakistan. Material And Method: A retrospective study was conducted at the diagnostic clinical setup Azeem ultrasound & digital X-Ray center Gujrat. . A total of 377 female patients who meet the inclusion criteria were enrolled in present study. The duration of the study was 4 months i.e. September 2021 to December 2021. Results: We observed 377 patients, among these participants age ranged from 1 year as minimum age and 70 years as maximum with mean age was 39±15.7. The maximum frequency of patients 111(29.4%) was found in the age range of 31-40 years following 79(21%) in 21-30 years. Out of these, there were 109 males (28.9%), and 268 females (71.1%). Among 377 patients, there were 59 (15.6%) positive cases who showed anterior wall abdominal hernia where paraumblical hernias and umbilical hernias were the most frequently occurring hernia 20(5.3%) and 19 (5%) patients respectively. Conclusion: According to the current study, there were more females than men , male dominance was demonstrated in inguinal hernias and female dominance in paraumbilical hernias. In the management plan for patients in whom the diagnosis of an abdominal wall hernia is uncertain, abdominal wall ultrasonography is a useful tool. The ultrasound results can have an impact on treatment choices, allowing for a more rapid and cost-effective clinical procedure.
