A review of Morgagni and Bochdalek hernias in adults.
Folia Morphol (Warsz). 2011 Feb; 70(1):5-12.FM

Abstract

The incidence of Bochdalek and Morgagni hernias among adults is very rare. The purpose of this study was to determine retrospectively the prevalence and characteristics of adult Bochdalek and Morgagni hernias in a decade. Consequently, we demonstrated 12 patients with Bochdalek and 8 patients with Morgagni hernias. We presented plain radiography, operation images, and computed tomography findings of an adult patient with symptoms due to Bochdalek and Morgagni hernias. In surgical repair, the Morgagni hernia is best approached via laparotomy, and the Bochdalek hernia can be treated through thoracotomy or laparotomy.
