Morgagni-Larrey hernia is a congenital type of diaphragmatic hernia. It is quite uncommon, particularly when it occurs on the left side of the diaphragm. This is a report of a case of a large left-side diaphragmatic hernia through the foramen of Morgagni treated by laparoscopy. The hernia was repaired by incorporating and fixing a polypropylene double-filament mesh into the defect, leaving the sac in mediastinum. The patient recovered promptly after the hernia repair, and there was no recurrence or complaints 30 months after surgery. Our conclusion is that laparoscopically repairs of Morgagni hernias with a prosthetic material are a safe and effective treatment. A literature review also shows that laparoscopic techniques are the gold standard in diaphragmatic hernias repairs.

Abstract

Morgagni-Larrey hernia is a congenital type of diaphragmatic hernia. It is quite uncommon, particularly when it occurs on the left side of the diaphragm. This is a report of a case of a large left-side diaphragmatic hernia through the foramen of Morgagni treated by laparoscopy. The hernia was repaired by incorporating and fixing a polypropylene double-filament mesh into the defect, leaving the sac in mediastinum. The patient recovered promptly after the hernia repair, and there was no recurrence or complaints 30 months after surgery. Our conclusion is that laparoscopically repairs of Morgagni hernias with a prosthetic material are a safe and effective treatment. A literature review also shows that laparoscopic techniques are the gold standard in diaphragmatic hernias repairs.
