    ABSTRACT: Introduction Spigelian herniae are uncommon and frequently pose a diagnostic challenge. Case presentation We report the case of a 71-year-old man in whom an ischaemic appendix was found within the sac of a Spigelian hernia during emergency repair. Conclusions There are very few reported cases in which an appendix has been found within a Spigelian hernia, in the absence of inflammatory bowel disease.

In this article we explore the application of the educational principles underlining training and assessment in the new training pathway.
