BACKGROUND: Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) is a symptom frequently found in obese patients, and often is related to the presence of a hiatal hernia (HH). Surgeons may evaluate for the presence of HH on esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). However, preoperative endoscopic presence or absence of a significant HH does not always correlate with intraoperative findings. OBJECTIVE: To compare the rate of detection of repairable HH between clinical, endoscopic, and intraoperative methods SETTING: Independent, university-affiliated teaching hospital METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all consecutive patients who had undergone a primary bariatric procedure sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, or biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch with routine preoperative EGD in a single institution from 2009-2013 was performed...

BACKGROUND: Hiatal hernia (HH) is common in the bariatric population. Its presence imposes various degrees of difficulty in performing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Preoperative upper gastrointestinal evaluation consists of fluoroscopic and or endoscopic studies OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of routine, preoperative barium swallow in identifying HH in patients undergoing LSG, and determine if such foreknowledge changes operative and immediate postoperative course regarding operative time, intraoperative adverse events, and length of hospital stay (LOS)...

Purpose Patients with asplenia syndrome (AS) are likely to have upper gastrointestinal tract malformations such as hiatal hernia. This report discusses the treatment of such conditions. Methods Seventy-five patients with AS underwent initial palliation in our institution between 1997 and 2013. Of these, 10 patients had hiatal hernia. Of the patients with hiatal hernia, 6 had brachyesophagus and 7 had microgastria. Results Of the 10 patients with hiatal hernia, 9 underwent surgery in infancy (7 before Glenn operation, 2 after Glenn operation)...

From 2005 through 2014, a total of 27,276 active component service members had incident diagnoses of hiatal hernia documented in their medical records. The overall incidence rate was 19.7 cases per 10,000 person-years (p-yrs); annual incidence rates ranged from 16.5 to 22.2 cases per 10,000 p-yrs. Rates overall increased monotonically with increasing age and were higher among Air Force and Army members, officers, and healthcare workers than their respective counterparts. During the surveillance period, the 27,276 service members who had incident diagnoses of hiatal hernia accounted for 44,092 hiatal hernia-related encounters overall (1...

Chest pain is a common symptom in patients who visit Emergency Departments. The main task is to exclude life-threatening diseases such as acute coronary syndrome, pulmonary embolization and dissection of thoracic aorta. The authors present the history of a patient, who had an intense chest pain for 7 hours. In accordance with the diagnostic algorithm of chest pain, ECG, blood collection, chest X-ray and chest computed tomography angiography were performed. Acute coronary syndrome, pulmonary embolization and dissection of the thoracic aorta were excluded, however, chest computed tomography CT revealed a huge hiatal hernia as an incidental finding...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic repair of the hiatal hernia is associated with a recurrence rate between 12% and 42% depending on the defect size. Although the impact of hiatal reinforcement on long-term recurrence remains controversial, the main limitation of this approach has been the risk of adverse events related with the use of synthetic materials in the vicinity of the esophagus. METHODS: A total of 14 female domestic pigs underwent laparoscopic primary hiatal hernia repair of a simulated defect in the esophageal hiatus...

Asymptomatic giant hiatal hernia comprises a relatively common disease, mostly presented in women with 50 years onwards. The therapeutic approach remains controversial in recent years. Under the latest SAGES`revision, all the symptomatic hernias must be repaired, but the symptomatic hiatal hernia definition isn`t even now established. We present the case os a A 67 - year old woman with an asymptomatic hiatal hernia, that is admitted to our hospital owing to toracic and abdominal pain. This pain was related with food intake for 6 months...

Background/Aims: The study was aimed to evaluate pre and postfundoplication profile of esophagogastric junction (EGJ) and esophageal peristalsis by high-resolution manometry (HRM) in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Methods: HRM was performed in 25 patients with GERD before (pre-ops) and after (post-ops) laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. The study involved capturing HRM data for 10 consecutive swallows of 10 mL water boluses in upright position...

A 53-year-old woman with foreign body esophageal perforation, was first misdiagnosed as pulmonary thromboembolism. In referral hospital her chest computed tomography was reported as giant hiatal hernia or giant pulmonary abscess. She was treated for abscess, after several days, right hemithorax tube thoracostomy was performed. After that, she developed necrotizing fasciitis on the chest wall. After a 19-day delay, we found a 5-cm mid-thoracic esophageal tearing during thoracotomy and repaired it. After 2 years follow up the patient condition is good...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is an epidemic in the USA that continues to grow, becoming a leading cause of premature avoidable death. Bariatric surgery has become an effective solution for obesity and its comorbidities, and one of the most commonly utilized procedures, the sleeve gastrectomy, can lead to an increase in gastroesophageal reflux following the operation. While these data are controversial, sometimes operative intervention can be necessary to provide durable relief for this problem...

BACKGROUND: Our aim was to ascertain the incidence of, reasons for, and risk factors associated with hospital readmission after an operation for benign distal esophageal disease. METHODS: Using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database (2012-2014), patients with a primary diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease, paraesophageal hiatal hernia, or achalasia who underwent fundoplication, paraesophageal hernia repair, or Heller myotomy were identified...

INTRODUCTION: According to the Brazilian National Institute of Cancer, gastric cancer is the third leading cause of death among men and the fifth among women in Brazil. Surgical resection is the only potentially curative treatment. The most serious complications associated with surgery are fistulas and dehiscence of the jejunal-esophageal anastomosis. Hiatal hernia refers to herniation of elements of the abdominal cavity through the esophageal hiatus of the diaphragm, though this occurrence is rarely reported as a complication in gastrectomy...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Hiatal hernias are repaired laparoscopically with increasing use of reinforcement material. Both synthetic and biologically derived materials reduce the recurrence rate compared to primary crural repair. Synthetic mesh introduces complications, such as mesh erosion, fibrosis, and infection. Urinary bladder matrix (UBM) represents a biologically derived material for use in hiatal hernia repair reinforcement with the potential to improve durability of repair without incurring the risks of other reinforcement materials...

BACKGROUND: Although postoperative esophageal hiatal hernia (EHH) is primarily considered a post-operative complication of esophagectomy, it is also a rare post-operative complication of laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG), with a reported incidence rate of 0.5 %. The purpose of this study is to analyze the incidence, clinical features, and prevention of EHH following LTG for gastric cancer. METHODS: Between October 2008 and July 2014, 78 patients who underwent LTG for gastric cancer in our hospital were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Synthetic mesh (SM) has been used in the laparoscopic repair of hiatus hernia but remains controversial due to reports of complications, most notably esophageal erosion. Biological mesh (BM) has been proposed as an alternative to mitigate this risk. The aim of this study is to establish the incidence of complications, recurrence and revision surgery in patients following suture (SR), SM or BM repair and undertake a survey of surgeons to establish a perspective of current practice...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate objective and subjective outcomes of patients undergoing laparoscopic repair of large hiatal hernia, either with or without resorbable mesh augmentation. The primary outcome of the study was anatomical recurrence rate as measured by endoscopy. Secondary outcomes were safety, efficacy, and long-term quality of life. METHODS: This was an observational cohort study. Patients who underwent laparoscopic repair of large (≥5 cm) type III hiatal hernia were included...
