Bodwitch is credited for the most extensive paper on the subject of paediatric Bochdalek hernias giving a numerical analysis of all the cases recorded in the medical literature between the years — We reduced the small bowel remnant up into the chest cavity, and proceeded to suction over 2L of feculent material from her chest via the hernia defect. In BHs, sagittal and coronal reformatted images can reveal the diaphragmatic defects and hernia contents Figs. At emergency midline laparotomy, 15 cm of herniated perforated necrotic small bowel was removed from the right pleural cavity and resected, and the bowel was anastomosed. The decision was made to take the patient urgently to the operating room for an exploratory laparotomy and right thoracotomy.
Laparoscopic Repair of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia in Adults
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Previously he was very fit, cycling 8 miles daily. Traumatic or congenital diaphragmatic hernias are closed surgically to repair or avoid entrapment of organs incarceration , possibly leading to strangulation or gangrene of that organ. Exploratory laparotomy revealed an approximately 3 cm x2cm diaphragmatic defect, posterior and lateral to the falciform ligament. Three years earlier, he had been diagnosed with moderately differentiated rectal adenocarcinoma pT 3 pN 0 , which was treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. Figure 2 Preoperative diagnostic imaging in case 1. The hernia can be treated via thoracotomy assisted with laparoscopy with good effect RadioGraphics ;

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia presenting as splenic rupture in an adult. A year-old woman, known to have hypertension and asthma, presented with a 4-day history of severe abdominal pain, with nausea, vomiting and constipation for the past 2 days. A 41 years old lady was referred to our unit with exacerbating shortness of breath on exertion, and inability to lie flat for two years. Iatrogenic DH is a type of acquired DH. Overview of epidemiology, genetics, birth defects, and chromosome abnormalities associated with CDH. Minor defects, technically easier to fix, can be sutured normally; in the case of larger apertures, or even hemidiaphragmatic agenesis, the use of nonabsorbable polypropylene mesh is the only solution. Late-onset diaphragmatic hernia after percutaneous radiofrequency ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma:
Iatrogenic DH is a type of acquired DH. The elective procedure was concluded with him treated intraoperatively with albuterol and maintained on FiO 2 1. How these multiple fenestrations come to existence is a subject of debate. World J Emerg Surg ;4: The most common type of congenital DH occurs in the posterolateral segment of the diaphragm, which Bochdalek first described and which is called a BH [ 14 , 15 ].
