|Abstract:||Closure of diaphragmatic defects, regardless of their cause, can often be achieved by direct suture. However, when a large defect secondary to tissue destruction has been observed, direct closure is likely to be difficult. The glutaraldehyde-preserved bovine pericardium is a biological material with high resistance and allows for easy surgical manipulation. This case report shows the use of these prostheses applied in a patient after massive diaphragm resection due to hepatectomy by colon metastasis invasion in the diaphragm muscle. To replace diaphragm muscle, the glutaraldehyde-preserved bovine pericardium prostheses showed a good result even after four laparotomies.|
