Laparoscopic dual mesh repair of a diaphragmatic hernia of Bochdalek in a symptomatic elderly patient.
Summary of "Laparoscopic dual mesh repair of a diaphragmatic hernia of Bochdalek in a symptomatic elderly patient."
Bochdalek hernia is a congenital posterolateral diaphragmatic defect. It is usually diagnosed in newborns and children; the mortality rate is high due to further congenital anomalies such as pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension. In adulthood, the diagnosis is often incidental, while sometimes it is related to gastrointestinal or respiratory symptoms, or to herniated viscera complications. Thus, surgical treatment is advocated. We herein report a case of an 86-year-old woman with dyspnea and dysphagia. After the diagnosis by barium enema and CT scan of the herniated stomach and the greater omentum through a left side foramen of Bochdalek, she underwent a successful laparoscopic dual mesh repair and was discharged on the 6th postoperative day.

Right-sided Bochdalek hernia in adults is a very rare clinical entity. A case of a 50-year-old female patient is reported, who presented with long history of intermittent breathlessness and right-side...
An isolated intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia is very rare. Only 15 cases have been reported, 2 of which are in adults. The defect in the anterior diaphragm allows abdominal contents to enter the...
Laparoscopic technique to repair ventral hernia offers advantages over conventional open surgery such as shorter recovery time, decreased pain, and lower recurrence rates. There are a myriad of meshes...
As laparoscopic hernia repair is slowly becoming the norm in the management of inguinal hernia, its remotely possible long-term complications have started becoming evident. We report an asymptomatic h...
Mesh fixation in laparoscopic umbilical hernia repair is poorly studied. We compared postoperative outcomes of laparoscopic umbilical hernia repair in suture versus tack mesh fixation.
The laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias is still a controversial therapeutic option. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic repair we compare the results of the open and la...
The purpose of the study is 1. To compare the recurrence rate of the laparoscopic total extra peritoneal inguinal hernia repair without fixation of the mesh to mesh fixation under...

This purpose of this study is to compare the recovery after an operation of an incisional hernia within the limits of the rectus muscles of the abdominal wall. The use of a mesh in the rep...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The type of DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA caused by TRAUMA or injury, usually to the ABDOMEN.
Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.
STOMACH herniation located at or near the diaphragmatic opening for the ESOPHAGUS, esophageal hiatus. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is above the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a SLIDING HIATAL HERNIA. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is below the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a PARAESOPHAGEAL HIATAL HERNIA.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
Protrusion of abdominal structures into the THORAX as a result of congenital or traumatic defects in the respiratory DIAPHRAGM.
