Abstract

In this article, we present 2 cases with successful reduction of herniated organs and repair of a ruptured diaphragm through a single-port video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) approach using CO2 gas insufflation in haemodynamically stable patients. A CO2 insufflation was useful to push the diaphragm down and aided in reducing the size of the herniated organ. This approach did not cause damage to the herniated organs and no additional instrument or assistant was required. Thus, CO2 insufflation makes the single-port VATS procedure easier even in haemodynamically stable trauma patients.
