  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reported a case of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) plication for diaphragmatic eventraion. A 74-year-old woman complained of a pain in her left chest in the right lateral position. It was difficult to distin-guish diaphragmatic eventration from diaphragmatic hernia by chest X ray. Chest MRI revealed elevation of the diaphragm. Respiratory function was normal and her symptom was not severe, but she requested surgery and VATS plication was performed.
