Retracted: Diagnostic Dilemma of a Diaphragmatic Hernia
Diaphragmatic hernia post esophagectomy is a rare complication but a reality in its existence. It is typically difficult to diagnose but highly depends on keeping high index of suspicion. In our case report, the young male who underwent esophagectomy for esophageal carcinoma, remained disease free and stable in his 9 months follow up, suddenly presented in the emergency department with the symptoms of shortness of breath, chest pain, vomiting and tachycardia. The case was typically complicated by the initial treatment given for acute ischemia and cardiogenic shock. Radiological findings proved to be helpful and turning point in the diagnosis and overall management.
