Abstract

Minimal invasive surgery allows for excellent visualisation of the diaphragm, and is increasingly used for the repair of diaphragmatic hernias in children. This report describes laparoscopic repairs between 2001 and 2007 of four Morgagni hernias in children. All defects were treated successfully using the laparoscopic method, with no recurrences. The laparoscopic method is an ideal way to treat this type of diaphragmatic hernia.
