Morgagni hernia is a rare diaphragmatic hernia. It is formed in the retrosternal space by the failure of fusion of the diaphragm with the costal arches. It is usually detected and repaired in childhood, however some cases are detected incidentally in adulthood or are found upon investigation of cardiorespiratory symptoms.
We present the operative video of the laparoscopic repair of a Morgagni hernia in a 62 year old gentleman who presented with progressive dyspnoea and exercise intolerance. The hernia was repaired using a combination of primary closure & mesh reinforcement, the video seeks to show the critical, technical steps in achieving a successful laparoscopic repair.
