Morgagni hernias are rare finding in the adult population and represent 1%–3% of all congenital diaphragmatic hernias. These retrosternal diaphragmatic hernias develop from a congenital failure of the pars sterna to fuse with the costal arches.

Most commonly, these hernias occur on the right; however, rarely, they can occur on the left, termed a Morgagni-Larrey hernia.

Unlike infants who frequently present with acute respiratory distress or failure, adults may present with chronic symptoms or a Morgagni hernia may be found incidentally. 

Due to the risk of incarceration or atelectasis, surgical treatment is recommended for Morgagni hernias identified in the adult population.Multiple approaches to these rare hernias have been described in the literature.Surgery is the only treatment available.

We present the laparoscopic surgery for morgagni hernia.

Morgagni hernias are one of the congenital diaphragmatic hernias (CDH), and is characterized by herniation through the foramen of Morgagni. When compared to Bochdalek hernias, Morgagni hernias are:

  • anterior
  • more often right-sided (~90%)
  • small
  • rare (~2% of CDH)
  • at low risk of prolapse

Only ~30% of patients are symptomatic. Newborns may present with respiratory distress at birth similar to a Bochdalek hernia. Additionally, recurrent chest infections and gastrointestinal symptoms have been reported in those with previously undiagnosed Morgagni hernia.

Morgagni hernias most often contain omental fat, but transverse colon (60%) or stomach (12%) may be included within the hernia. 

  • pentalogy of Cantrell
  • congenital heart disease
  • trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)
  • intestinal malrotation 

Some sources recommend laparoscopic surgical repair, even in asymptomatic patients, to avoid the risk of strangulation of the hernia contents 6.

  • cardiophrenic angle lesions: the main differential diagnosis for Morgagni hernia is a cardiophrenic fat pad. It appears radiolucent compared with other lesions not containing fat 
  • focal diaphragmatic eventration 
  • diaphragmatic rupture: from trauma, but usually other supportive signs of chest and/or abdominal trauma would be apparent. This is most commonly seen posterior and posterolaterally
