A 61-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with progressive dyspnea on exertion. Chest X-rays and computed tomography (CT) showed elevation of the left diaphragm and atelectasis of the left lung. Eventration of the diaphragm was performed. The redundant diaphragm was plicated with vertical mattress sutures and reinforced by the suturing of the remnant diaphragm to the diaphragm near to the chest wall. During the thoracoscopic procedures, thoracoscopic examination from a small part of the resected diaphragm was conducted simultaneously to ensure safety and avoid damage to intra-abdominal organs...

Isolated traumatic phrenic nerve injury resulting from a stab wound to the neck is very rare. Herein, we report the case of a patient who was accidentally stabbed with garden shears that pierced her neck and penetrated the spinal canal. She sustained a right phrenic nerve injury complicated by diaphragm palsy and subsequent respiratory distress. We successfully treated the patient with video-assisted thoracoscopic diaphragm plication.

Injury to the phrenic nerves may occur during surgery for pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (PA-VSD and MAPCAs). These patients may develop respiratory failure and require diaphragm plication. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of phrenic nerve palsy on recovery following surgery for PA-VSD and MAPCAs. Between 2007 and 2016, approximately 500 patients underwent surgery for PA-VSD and MAPCAs at our institution. Twenty-four patients (4...

This case involves a 70-year-old woman who presented after a low-speed motor vehicle collision with a traumatic right hemidiaphragm rupture and herniation of the liver into the right chest. She was brought to the operating room for a robotic-assisted minimally invasive transthoracic repair of this hernia with diaphragm plication. The case and video described in this report highlight the utility of the robotic platform in performing a transthoracic diaphragm repair and plication after a right-sided traumatic diaphragm rupture in a patient without concomitant abdominal injuries...

Diaphragm paralysis can cause significant shortness of breath. This condition can be treated with diaphragm plication. We illustrate two cases where we used a knotless suture and total portal thoracoscopic technique to successfully plicate the diaphragm. A 70-year-old female with right-sided and a 44-year-old male with left-sided diaphragm paralysis. Both patients had a sniff test that showed paradoxical movement of the diaphragm. The port placements during the procedure were different due to the laterality but both patients had three 5-mm ports and one 12-mm port for the procedure...

Diaphragmatic eventration is an uncommon malady, underdiagnosed and often treated only in emergent situations. Eventration of the diaphragm is best treated by plication of diaphragm with or without meshplasty. Various studies have shown that thoracoscopic plication is as efficient as laparotomy or laparoscopic plication. We present here the report of thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication for eventration performed in the third trimester of pregnancy in a 28-year-old woman who presented with acute respiratory distress...

A rare adverse event of a right-sided pneumectomy with an elevated hemidiaphragm is right-to-left shunting through a patent foramen ovale. In this case report we describe our experience with plication of the right hemidiaphragm with instantaneous hemodynamic results and pain relief, followed by secondary closure of the foramen ovale.

BACKGROUND: In this single-center study, we sought to determine the frequency of phrenic nerve injury leading to diaphragm paresis (DP) in children following open cardiac surgery over the last 10 years, and to identify possible variables that predict the need for plication and associated clinical outcomes. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with DP were identified from departmental databases and a review of clinical diaphragm ultrasound images. A cohort was analyzed for predictors of diaphragm plication and associations with clinical outcomes...

Phrenic nerve palsy is a rare cause of respiratory distress in a newborn. When conservative measures fail to achieve adequate ventilation, then early surgical plication has been found to be associated with good outcome. We report a case of neonate with phrenic nerve palsy in whom an early thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication was done.

A 49-year-old man with left phrenic nerve paralysis caused by mediastinal tumor resection 28 years earlier was found to have a nodule in the right upper lobe. The right phrenic nerve was severed during right upper lobectomy but was reconstructed along with bilateral plication of the diaphragm. The patient was weaned from the ventilator during the daytime on postoperative day 13 and was discharged home on postoperative day 48. Three months postoperatively, chest fluoroscopic imaging showed recovery of movement of the right diaphragm...

We present a rare case of 32year old female with congenital diaphragmatic eventeration female presenting in an adult. She had symptoms of intermittent dyspnea and occasional epigastric discomfort. Patient had no previous history of trauma. Physical examination showed bowel sound involving the left hemithorax. Imaging modalities confirmed the diagnosis of a congenital left diaphragmatic eventeration. Patient underwent plication of the diaphragm using the abdominal approach. Intra-operatively, the left diaphragm was attenuated...

Diaphragmatic plication has been a well employed method for the treatment of diaphragmatic eventration and/or paralysis. Uniportal thoracoscopic procedures seem to offer substantial benefit in terms of postoperative pain and cosmesis with similar outcomes as other surgical techniques. A 60-year-old female patient was referred to our clinic for the surgical treatment of diaphragmatic eventration of an unknown cause. The patient was referred to our institution from another hospital, where she had undergone a femoro-popliteal and crural bypass which was unsuccessful, requiring amputation of her leg...

K U Asche, A Kaindlstorfer, R Pointner
An optimal functioning of the gastroesophageal antireflux barrier depends on an anatomical overlapping of the lower esophageal sphincter and the crural diaphragm. Restoration of this situation is currently only possible by antireflux interventions combined with hiatoplasty and necessitates a laparoscopic approach. Newer alternative techniques to the generally accepted fundoplication are laparoscopic implantation of the LINX® device or the EndoStim® system and various endoscopic antireflux procedures, such as radiofrequency energy treatment, plication and implantation techniques aimed at augmentation of the gastroesophageal valve...

OBJECTIVE: Surgeons have hesitated to adopt minimally invasive diaphragm plication techniques because of technical limitations rendering the procedure cumbersome or leading to early failure or reduced efficacy. We sought to demonstrate efficacy and durability of our thoracoscopic plication technique using a single running suture. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent our technique for diaphragm plication since 2008. We used a single, buttressed, double-layered, to-and-fro running suture with additional plicating horizontal mattress sutures as needed...

BACKGROUND: Surgical correction needs to be considered when diaphragm eventration leads to impaired ventilation and respiratory muscle fatigue. Plication to sufficiently tense the diaphragm by VATS is not as easy to achieve as plication by open surgery. We used pneumatic compression with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas in thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication and evaluated feasibility and efficacy. METHODS: Eleven patients underwent thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication between January 2008 and December 2013 in Pusan National University Hospital...

BACKGROUND: Thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication for diaphragmatic paralysis with consecutive eventration and respiratory compromise is a desirable alternative to standard thoracotomy. Since minimally invasive techniques usually involve suturing of the diaphragm, most surgeons use a video-assisted approach with a minithoracotomy. Herein we describe our completely thoracoscopic technique for diaphragmatic plication including outcome. METHODS: We present our technique and experience for completely thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication for the treatment of symptomatic diaphragmatic paralysis in six consecutive patients...

Background Phrenic nerve reconstruction has been evaluated as a method of restoring functional activity and may be an effective alternative to diaphragm plication. Longer follow-up and a larger cohort for analysis are necessary to confirm the efficacy of this procedure for diaphragmatic paralysis. Methods A total of 180 patients treated with phrenic nerve reconstruction for chronic diaphragmatic paralysis were followed for a median 2.7 years. Assessment parameters included: 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) physical functioning survey, spirometry, chest fluoroscopy, electrodiagnostic evaluation, a five-item questionnaire to assess specific functional issues, and overall patient-reported outcome...
