In eight patients who underwent surgical treatment for diaphragmatic rupture, pulmonary function and differential ventilation of the lungs were evaluated four months-one year after surgery. The results of the study show that diaphragmatic rupture produces only a small reduction in total ventilatory function. Moreover our data indicate that the ventilation estimated to be contributed by the side injured, is decreased in a larger extent in abdominal than in thoracic trauma.
