In this case, the iatrogenic diaphragm rupture may have been caused by laparoscopic instruments and xiphoid trocars, or after the thoracic tube insertion to treat pneumothorax in the first laparoscopy attempt that passed through the diaphragm and got widened over the period of time or maybe it was a diaphragmatic burst due to increased intra-abdominal pressure which is nearly impossible to occur, though.
