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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Hernia, Diaphragmatic, Traumatic
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.
INTRODUCTION: An adult presentation of congenital diaphragmatic hernia is very rare. Here, we present a rare case report of left-sided central diaphragmatic hernia in an adult. Laparoscopic repair of...
Morgagni hernia is a rare type of congenital diaphragmatic hernia found in the anterior aspect of the diaphragm. It typically presents in the pediatric population and rarely is diagnosed in adults. On...
Laparascopic mesh repair is a safe and effective method of surgically treating incisional hernia. However, such an approach may lead to specific complications of both laparoscopy and mesh placement. T...
Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is an accepted method for incisional hernia repair. Although techniques vary, transfascial suturing of the mesh to the abdominal wall has been proposed as a viable w...
INTRODUCTION: The laparoscopic approach is an increasingly popular option for ventral hernia repair. In the wake of this new technology, unexpected complications have been reported. CASE PRESENTATION:...
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...
