Repair of recurrent congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) continues to be a difficult problem. Although several materials have been used to repair recurrent CDH, the ideal material has yet to be established. We report the successful use of an autologous free fascia lata graft to repair the diaphragm following a second recurrence of CHD. The fascia lata is one of the strongest fascia in the body and is easy to obtain without extremity functional loss even in children. This procedure is regarded as effective for the repair of recurrent CDH.
