PAGAN P, ALBERTO. Laparoscopic repair of Morgagni hernia: Report of two cases. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2008, vol.60, n.1, pp.59-62. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262008000100013.

Morgagni hernia is an uncommon congenital defect of the anterior diaphragm that can be asymptomatic or cause symptoms, depending of the contents of the hernia sac. It is treated with open surgery, but laparoscopic surgery is also an alternative for a simple repair or mesh placement. We report two patients. A 62 years old female subjected to an elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. During the procedure a Morgagni hernia was detected and repaired. A 72 years old female with a herniation of transverse and ascending colon into the thorax that was operated, repairing the hernia with suture and mesh placement. Both patients had an uneventful postoperative outcome

Palavras-chave : Morgagni hernia; laparoscopic surgery; diaphragmatic defects.
