Laparoscopic treatment of symptomatic diaphragmatic endometriosis: a case report.

Author information

Mercer University School of Medicine, Macon, Georgia.


Extreme caution and meticulous surgery are imperative when treating the surface of the diaphragm. This procedure should only be performed by an experienced laparoscopic surgeon after appropriate consultation with a cardiothoracic surgeon. Proper care, a thorough understanding of surrounding anatomic structures, and familiarity with laparoscopic instrumentation including the CO2 laser are required for the safe laser vaporization or excision of any peritoneal surface using hydrodissection (7).
