diaphragmatic hernia, gastric bypass, bariatric surgery


Bochdalek hernia is the most common congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Its symptoms are normally diagnosed and treated during the neonatal period. Conversely, in adults it is usually asymptomatic and, as a consequence, this group is misdiagnosed. A case of a 64-year-old female patient with an uncommon incarcerated right-sided diaphragmatic hernia formed three years after a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and a significant weight loss is reported. The importance of this abnormality as a complication of the bariatric surgery should be considered.

Key words: Diaphragmatic hernia; gastric bypass; bariatric surgery.
