Özet

Aim: Diaphragmatic eventration (DE) is a congenital or acquired elevation of the hemi-diaphragm. The indications for surgery may be challenging because clinical symptoms do not always correlate with radiological severity. We aim to identify the factors for the necessity and the efficiency of thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication (TDP) in children with DE.
