This video describes a laparoscopic-extracorporeal repair with mesh of a Morgagni diaphragmatic hernia in an 81 year old female.

We used Ventralight™ ST Mesh which is an uncoated lightweight monofilament polypropylene mesh on the anterior side with an absorbable hydrogel barrier based on Sepra® Technology on the posterior side for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. The posterior side mesh does not cause adhesion with the abdominal organs.

A quick review of the literature of laparoscopic cases has shown that in a substantial amount of cases the hernia was reduced and the defect repaired with mesh placement without hernia sac resection . Therefore, non-resecting the sac is an acceptable option.
