Buerger’s disease is a limb threatening condition occurring in the young age group. Omental transfer is an old known procedure to re vascularize the ischemic limb. The herniation of bowel through the defect made for omental transfer is an unusual complication. The strangulation of the herniated bowel through the omentoplasty defect is even more unusual and rare. The defect in the musculoaponeurotic plane is responsible for the herniation. Here we present one such unusual case which presented with strangulated bowel. To our knowledge such complication has not been previously reported.
