Morgagni hernia is a congenital, retrosternally situated, diaphragmatic defect usually seen on the right, but which may also affect the left side. It is very rare in adulthood and old age. As result of developing techniques in laparoscopy, congenital diaphragmatic hernia can now be repaired with minimally invasive means. Presently described are cases of 2 elderly female patients with subtle abdominal symptoms incidentally diagnosed with Morgagni hernia after abdominal computed tomography scan. Both patients were operated on using minimally invasive approach and laparoscopic repair was performed with synthetic material reinforcement in both cases. Patients were discharged after uneventful postoperative period. In conclusion, laparoscopic repair can be performed safely in selected cases at centers experienced in advanced laparoscopy.
