Treatment of Morgagni Hernias by Transabdominal Approach

Issue: 
Synopsis: 
Surgical approach - thoracal or abdominal – to Morgagni hernias is controversial. In the authors' experience, the abdominal approach was successful. Its advantages are, feasibility in reducing intra-abdominal organs, ability to operate on bilateral hernias, no chest tube placement and little or no pulmonary complications.

ABSTRACT

Background: Recently, the thoracic approach has been suggested in the surgical treatment of Morgagni hernias with some reported advantages over abdominal surgery. This manuscript reports the authors’ experience with childhood Morgagni hernias repaired via laparotomy.

Subjects and Methods: Records of five cases of Morgagni hernias were evaluated with respect to age, presentation, operative data, complications, and outcome.
