Our patient is a 37 year old physically active male who presented to his primary MD with the complaints of chest pain while running. Workup revealed a large diaphragmatic hernia with liver herniated to the right of the heart. The base of the hernia defect is the inferior vena cava. Our video demonstrates our technique for reduction of the hernia contents, closure of the diaphragmatic defect, and mesh placement.
