Paraesophageal hernia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The laparoscopic repair of paraesophageal hernia has proven to be safe and effective, with relatively low morbidity and mortality rates. The laparoscopic approach is feasible in patients with paraesophageal hernia because these patients are usually past middle age and commonly have multiple other medical problems. The procedure is technically demanding, but skilled laparoscopic surgeons should be able to perform the standard repair, that is, sac excision, crural closure, and fundoplication or gastropexy.
