Abstract

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs in 1 of every 2000 to 3000 live births and accounts for 8% of all major congenital anomalies. Bilateral hernias account for no more than 1% of all types of CDH; furthermore, they are usually fatal prenatally. Those that survive are identified through a limited number of case reports. We are presenting an unusual case of bilateral CDH hernia in a neonate that was repaired successfully using a staged thoracoscopic approach. To our knowledge, this represents the first case in the world literature of bilateral CDH that was repaired thoracoscopically. In carefully selected patients, appropriate use of disruptive new technologies such as thoracoscopy can be achieved.
