Morgagni's hernia: laparoscopic approach

Epublication WebSurg.com, Sep 2016;16(09). URL:
Morgagni's hernia is a rare congenital and usually asymptomatic disorder. It may cause respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms. We reviewed the clinical findings of a patient with a Morgagni's hernia, diagnosed and managed in our department. Morgagni's hernia caused various symptoms in our patient and surgery was performed via laparoscopy. A chest CT-scan established the diagnosis. The hernial defect was closed with a synthetic mesh. Our patient had an uneventful postoperative recovery. We believe that the laparoscopic approach is an effective way of repairing Morgagni's hernia.
