VATS Diaphragm Plication

Plication of the diaphragm is performed for paralysis or eventration (abnormal elevation/shape) of the diaphragm which can result in breathing difficulties. Diaphragm paralysis is typically due to damage to the phrenic nerve; eventration is most commonly congenital. Surgical plication to stabilize the diaphragm is needed to prevent the lungs from ballooning outward during expiration (breathing out), the opposite of normal function.
