Three cases of giant diaphragmatic hernia were reported in our study. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed multiple organ migration into the chest. The clinical presentation included bowel obstruction, dyspnea, or chest pain. The operations were performed initially by laparoscopy to reduce the hernia content. The defect was closed with a nonabsorbable suture and was reinforced with a synthetic mesh. All patients recovered well without any serious complications. The symptom improved significantly after surgery. Postoperative CT scan showed normal anatomy. There was no evidence of recurrence within 6 months after the operation.
