Abstract

Bochdalek hernia (BH) is characterized by a defect of the posterolateral diaphragm and intrathoracic herniation of abdominal organs. The laparoscopic or thoracoscopic approach has recently become the surgical standard. However, studies on combined approaches are limited. An 8-year-old boy diagnosed with left BH was treated using a combined laparoscopic and thoracoscopic approach. On laparoscopy, BH with hernia sac was identified. Spleen, pancreas tail, kidney, and transverse colon had herniated into the left thoracic cavity. After the adhesion between transverse colon and hernia sac was dissected, all abdominal organs were restored to the abdominal cavity. On thoracoscopy, an 8 × 8 cm hernia orifice defect was identified and closed by suture. The postoperative course was uneventful, with no recurrence. A combined laparoscopic and thoracoscopic approach is safe and effective with a good field of view for left BH with hernia sac in children. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case with left BH reporting the use of both approaches in a child without conversion.
