Abstract

A 75-year-old woman who presented with a cough was found on investigation to have a large right-sided diaphragmatic hernia with intrathoracic herniation of the colon, small bowel, and right kidney. The patient denied any history of trauma and therefore the hernia was felt to be congenital in nature. The patient underwent a combined laparoscopic repair with polytetrafluoroethylene mesh and a thoracoscopic lysis of adhesions of the posterior right-sided diaphragmatic hernia. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a combined laparoscopic and thoracoscopic repair of a congential diahphragmatic hernia. Although successful repair can be accomplished laparoscopically, the addition of a thoracoscopic lysis of adhesions facilitated the early reexpansion of our patient's chronically scarred lung.
