Diaphragmatic hernia (DH) is a rare but recognized complication of esophageal surgery. However, the literature describes transhiatal hernias after esophageal surgery as a “diaphragmatic hernias”. From our literature search; there are no reports which describe a true diaphragmatic hernia or rupture with the hiatus intact in the same patient population.
We are presenting a minimally invasive approach to an emergent incarcerated diaphragmatic hernia from a diaphragmatic tear in a 52 year old male who was 12 months post-operative from an open transhiatal esophagogastrectomy.
Presented at the SAGES 2017 Annual Meeting in Houston, TX.
