How might Chilaiditi syndrome be treated?

Treatment of Chilaiditi syndrome is directed at the individual symptoms present. In some cases, treatment is not needed. Reducing (or removing) the pressure within the abdomen may help alleviate symptoms.[1] This may be achieved through conservative measure that address constipation, pain and distention.[2] Surgical intervention may include removal of a portion of the color or the anchoring of the liver to the abdominal wall.[1]
