CONGENITAL DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA
AbstractABSTRACTThe exact incidence of herniation through diaphragm is difficult to assess. If oesophagealHiatal Hernia is excluded, a diaphragmatic Hernia in a child is usually through Foramen ofBochdalek on left side. The Foramen of Morgagni is involved much less frequently. The commonestand most important type of Diaphragmatic Hernia is through the patent pleureperitonial canal(Bochdalek). This causes trouble on the left side more often than on the right, where the liver blocksoff all but large hernias. This paper is a report of two cases with delayed onset type of Hernia whichwere repaired surgically after confirmation of diagnosis.
