Thanks to the advent of advanced surgical techniques, partial lung resection through thoracoscopy has been increasingly used in far more cases of benign or malignant pulmonary lesions, providing with a significant improvement of the outcome. Though thoracoscopy is a less invasive technique, patients may rarely undergo unexpected late complications after operation. A rare case of left incarcerated diaphragmatic hernia of the stomach developed in a 46-year-old male patient as a late complication, four months after thoracoscopy-assisted atypical lung resection due to metastases from clear renal cell carcinoma.
