LAPAROSCOPIC TREATMENT OF MORGAGNI HERNIA: REPORT OF THREE CASES
Keywords:Hernia, diaphragmatic; Hernias, diaphragmatic, congenital; Laparoscopy – methods
We report on three cases of diaphragmatic (Morgagni) hernia with diff erent clinical presentations. It is important to consider the possibility of this rare but potentially very dangerous condition in patients with respiratory problems and pain in the upper abdomen. Before laparoscopy, two diff erent approaches were used in diaphragmatic hernia operations (abdominal and thoracic approach). Laparoscopy has brought significant changes in the treatment of diaphragmatic hernia. It is important to stress that laparoscopic diaphragmatic surgical therapy uses stronger mesh than the mesh used to repair an inguinal hernia.
