OLIVERA FAJARDO, Daniel; ESTEPA PEREZ, Jorge; SANTANA PEDRAZA, Tahiluma  and  CARILLO PEREZ, Moisés. Traumatic Diaphragmatic Hernia. A Case Report. Medisur [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.6, pp.807-811. ISSN 1727-897X.

Diaphragmatic trauma is secondary to penetrating injuries and blunt abdominal and thoracic trauma. Traumatic diaphragmatic hernia is an uncommon entity. Its diagnosis poses a real challenge to internists, surgeons and radiologists since it requires a high level of suspicion and appropriate use of diagnostic imaging. Surgical treatment is always needed. For these reasons, we present the case of a patient operated on due to a stab wound to the chest who was subsequently diagnosed with a traumatic diaphragmatic hernia on the left side of the chest. He underwent surgery again and had a successful postoperative recovery.

Keywords : hernia, diaphragmatic, traumatic; surgical procedures, operative; case reports.
