To present a case series of children with eventration of diaphragm who underwent thoracoscopic repair highlighting the technical points and surgical modifications to prevent a recurrence. This is an observational study of patients with diaphragmatic eventration admitted to a tertiary care institute. The study was designed following CARE guidelines endorsed by EQUATOR Network. Pediatric patients who had undergone thoracoscopic repair between January 2010 and March 2019 were included in the study. Age at surgery, gender, weight, site of the lesion, operating time, need for postoperative drain, and complications were assessed. Twenty-six patients had thoracoscopic repair of the eventration of diaphragm. The male-female ratio was 12:1 and mean weight at the time of surgery was 6.3 kg (2.2-22 kg) with most patients having left side congenital diaphragmatic eventration ( = 21) as compared with the right side ( = 5). The average operating time was 66 minutes (37-144 minutes). Diaphragm plication by a thoracoscopic approach is safe and feasible in neonates and pediatric patients.

A congenital abnormality characterized by the elevation of the DIAPHRAGM dome. It is the result of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle and injured PHRENIC NERVE, allowing the intra-abdominal viscera to push the diaphragm upward against the LUNG.

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.
