Laparoscopic repair of a Morgagni hernia presenting with syncope in an 85-year-old woman: case report and update of the literature.
J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A. 2002 Jun; 12(3):161-5.JL

Abstract

An 85-year-old woman was transferred from her local hospital for cardiac evaluation after presenting with repeated episodes of syncope during bowel movements. A thorough evaluation revealed no cardiac abnormalities but did reveal a Morgagni hernia with transverse colon in the mediastinum. She underwent laparoscopic reduction of the colon and repair of the hernia with mesh and had a rapid and uneventful recovery.
