Diaphragma plication surgery is possibly the most advanced approach in terms of using different techniques. There are a number of plication and suturing methods, which are improved by transthoracic or thoracoscopic methods, and almost all of these techniques are still in use depending on an individual case or the status of diaphragm. We believe that the plication method using thoracoscopic methods and endostapler would be widely adopted as a safe technique.
