Although diaphragmatic anomalies such as an eventration and hiatus hernia are commonly encountered in incidental chest X-ray imaging, the presence of concomitant multiple anomalies is extremely rare. This is all the more true in adults. Herein, we present the case of a 75-year-old female, while undergoing a routine chest X-ray imaging, was found to have eventration of right hemidiaphragm along with a hiatus hernia as well.

Spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress syndrome (SMARD1) is a rare cause of early infantile respiratory failure and death. No cases have been currently described from India. Two low-birth-weight infants presented prior to 6 months of age with recurrent apnea and respiratory distress. Both required prolonged ventilation, and had distal arthrogryposis and diaphragmatic eventration. Nerve conduction study revealed motor sensory axonopathy. Genetic testing confirmed mutations in immunoglobulin mu binding protein (IGHMBP2)...

OBJECTIVE: According to major difficulty for the giant omphalocele management in the visceral reintegration and the parietal closure, many teams use currently conservative treatment by topical application. These techniques are suppliers of a covered eventration and a scar sequela requiring a complementary treatment. We report the place of the tissue expansion as complementary treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two patients with a giant omphalocele benefited from a protocol of cutaneous expansion for the correction of their abdominal scar±of their residual eventration...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic incisional and ventral hernia repair (LIVHR) is being used increasingly, with reported outcomes equivalent to those of open hernia repair. Closure of the fascial defect (CFD) is a technique that may reduce seroma formation and bulging after LIVHR. Non-closure of the fascial defect makes the repair of larger defects easier and reduces postoperative pain. The aim of this systematic review was to determine whether CFD affects the rate of adverse outcomes, such as recurrence, pseudo-recurrence, mesh eventration or bulging, and the rate of seroma formation...

BACKGROUND: Diaphragmatic plication is an approved surgical procedure for treatment of symptomatic diaphragmatic paralysis and eventration. We aim to define our minimally invasive technique of plication and objectively assess our surgical outcomes of the largest series reported in the literature so far, using pulmonary function tests. METHODS: Symptomatic patients whom were planned to undergo plication using video-assisted mini-thoracotomy between December 2009 and December 2015 were the cohort of this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Asparagine Synthetase Deficiency (ASNSD; OMIM #615574) is a newly described rare autosomal recessive neurometabolic disorder, characterised by congenital microcephaly, severe psychomotor delay, encephalopathy and progressive cerebral atrophy. To date, seven families and seven missense mutations in the ASNSD disease causing gene, ASNS, have been published. METHODS: We report two further affected infant sisters from a consanguineous Indian family, who in addition to the previously described features had diaphragmatic eventration...

AIM: to improve the results of advanced peritonitis management. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 743 patients with advanced peritonitis were studied. Patients were divided into 2 groups depending on treatment strategy. RESULTS: Programmed relaparotomy combined with removable draining musculoaponeurotic seams during laparotomy closure decreased mortality from 47.8±2.7% to 24.1±2.3% (p<0.001) and provided 4-fold reduction of postoperative suppuration incidence (p<0...

Nonspecific ulcerative colitis is disease with complicated and not fully studied etiology and pathogenesis, and treatment of its complications is very difficult. Especially complicated is disease course with repetitive bleeding, toxic megacolon and perforation. We present a quite rare case of complication with multiple, especially repetitive perforations of transverse colon. After 13 days from the performance of subtotal colectomy, the patient underwent to the relaparotomy because of secondary perforation of sygmoid colon 2-3 cm lower from its cult and iliac intestine 0...

Diaphragmatic eventration and diaphragmatic paralysis are 2 entities with different etiology and pathology, and are often clinically indistinguishable. When symptomatic, their treatment is the same, with the objective to reduce the dysfunctional cephalad excursion of the diaphragm during inspiration. This can be achieved with diaphragmatic plication through the thorax or the abdomen with either open or minimally invasive techniques. We prefer the laparoscopic approach, due to its easy access to the diaphragm and to avoid pain associated with intercostal incisions and instrument use...

We report a case of an infant who was postnatally diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and an intact atrial septum who underwent emergent atrial decompression followed by the Norwood operation. She was also found to have a congenital diaphragmatic hernia on the left side and a congenital eventration of the right diaphragm, both requiring surgical repair. She was later found to have an anomalous origin of the left circumflex coronary artery from the right pulmonary artery that was ligated at the time of the bilateral bidirectional Glenn operation...

Calyceal diverticulum is an eventration of the upper collecting system within the renal parenchyma. This nonsecretory outpouching is lined by transitional epithelium and communicates with the main collecting system via a narrow channel. Tumor growth arising from a calyceal diverticulum is rare, and primary squamous cell carcinoma arising from a calyceal diverticulum has never been described in literature. Herein, we report a case of primary squamous cell carcinoma arising from a calyceal diverticulum and present initial imaging of a benign-appearing cystic lesion...

Owing to recent advances in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery have been gradually introduced for use in neonates and infants. This review focuses on two popular MIS procedures for diaphragmatic diseases in neonates and infants: congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CHD) repair and plication for diaphragmatic eventration. While several advantages of MIS are proposed for CDH repair in neonates, there are also some concerns, namely intraoperative hypercapnia and acidosis and a higher recurrence rate than open techniques...

Elevated diaphragm can be due to diaphragmatic eventration or diaphragm paralysis. Diaphragm paralysis is a rare condition that can be congenital or acquired. Acquired diaphragmatic paralysis can result from injury to the phrenic nerve. Subsequently, there is loss of contractility of the diaphragm muscle leading to progressive atrophy and, hence, distension of the dome of the diaphragm leading to elevated right, left, or both copula of the diaphragm. Diaphragm plication aims to return the abdominal contents back to their normal position and allow for greater lung expansion by reducing the abundant diaphragmatic surface...

PURPOSE: There is no data comparing different surgical techniques for diaphragmatic re-positioning for hemi-diaphragmatic eventration in adults. Our aim was to verify the potential pros and cons of two major surgical techniques in symptomatic eventration patients. METHODS: Patients undergoing thoracotomy for diaphragmatic elevation repair either by un-opened (accordion placation) or by opened (double-breasted placation) diaphragmatic technique between January 2007 and August 2013 were analyzed retrospectively, and compared in terms of operative outcomes on 12th and 24th months...

The article presents an analysis of 10-year treatment results of 62 children with gastroschisis. Children were divided into two groups and it depended on the applied surgical treatment. An elimination of congenital eventration using Bianchi method was performed for children of the main group. The operative methods such as siloplasty, Gross operation, alloplasty and primary radical abdominoplasty were performed for children of comparison group. Comparative assessment of efficacy of the treatment methods of gastroschisis showed, that Bianchi method had a number of advantages: an early transition to independent breath and enteral feeding, shortening of hospital stay, decrease of the rate of lethality from 66...

BACKGROUND: Defects in the abdominal wall of horses have high relapse rate. This is mainly in lateral eventrations and hernias caused by trauma from kicks of other horses or installation structures. The eventration region normally becomes swollen and there may be complications due to intestinal loop incarceration. The surgical treatment, consisting of reconstruction of the abdominal wall, frequently require biological or synthetic materials for the reinforcement of the suture line and tension support...
