Laparoscopic Treatment of Morgagni Hernia in Adults

A. Filipov, M. Tabakov


The Morgagni hernia is a rare congenital defect of the anterior diaphragm, which usually presents in childhood. It diagnosis in adults is difficult, usually because of respiratory symptoms. In several cases, life-threatening complications such as bowel obstruction or strangulation, were the clinical debut of the condition. The laparoscopic approach for repair of the diaphragmatic defect offers perfect visibility and accessibility to the anterior diaphragm. These advantages, along with the fast recovery after a laparoscopic surgery, make the minimally invasive technique the first choice for Morgagni hernia repair.
