Abstract : Open thoracotomy and plication of eventration of diaphragm leads to hyppoventilation due to pain and lung contusion due to retraction. We present two cases, 8 month and 4 years old; in whom plication was done thoracoscopically. Both had smooth recovery, early extubation and excellent cosmetic result.
