Abstract

Between 1987 and 1996 the transposition of a muscle flap using the anterolateral abdominal wall (the internal oblique and transversus abdominus muscle) has been used for the surgical treatment of fifteen cases of diaphragmatic agenesis. There are several advantages of this technique: a more accurate reconstruction of the diaphragmatic dome, a better adapted muscle flap, good tolerance and evolution as a result of the use of autologous material with thus less risk of recurrence and/or infection. The disadvantages are represented by the nine cases of abdominal herniation at the site of the muscle flap, three of which necessitated secondary surgical treatment. Nine children survived this treatment, six died following severe cardio-pulmonary complications associated with this malformation.
