Medical News Today: What to know about hiatal hernia surgery

Surgery is an effective way to treat a hiatal hernia, with a 90 –95 percent success rate in relieving symptoms such as acid reflux and GERD. Laparoscopic repair is the most common procedure. Recovery takes several weeks but a person can often go home the same day. Learn about recovery times, complications, and outlook.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has a reported incidence of between 10% and 20% in Western populations with an even higher incidence in populations with obesity [1]. The vast majority of patients are managed medically with surgical intervention undertaken in those with recalcitrant GERD. Populations with obesity and recalcitrant GERD who are interested in weight loss surgery have historically undergone laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). De Goot et  al. [2], in their 2009 meta-analysis, demonstrated improvement in GERD in people with obesity after LRYGB.

Hiatal hernia (HH) repair during laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has been advocated to reduce postoperative gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and/or intrathoracic migration (ITM) incidence. Previous,mid-term Results of a prospective, comparative study evaluating posterior cruroplasty concomitant with LSG (group A 48 patients with simple vs. group B 48 reinforced with bioabsorbable mesh) confirmed the safety and effectiveness of simultaneous procedures. Present aim: to report the 60 months follow-up update, evaluating GERD, esophageal lesions ’ incidence and HH’s recurrence.

The assessment of outcome after paraesophageal repair is difficult and complex. There is a wide range of reported outcomes that are not consistently defined. The focus of this article is on short-term ( ≤5 years) and long-term (>5  year) outcomes after laparoscopic paraesophageal repair and reviews key patient-reported outcomes (gastroesophageal reflux disease [GERD]–related and non–GERD-related symptoms), radiologic recurrence, additional therapy, and objective measurements. Overall, patients reported an excellent impro vement in their quality of life after repair that remains durable. Recurren...

This study was undertaken to evaluate the robotic approach versus laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) approach for redo fundoplications. With an Institutional Review Board approval, 64 patients undergoing LESS (n = 32) or robotic (n = 32) redo antireflux operations were prospectively followed up. Data are presented as median (mean + SD). For LESS versus robotic redo operations, the operative duration was 145 (143 ± 33.5) versus 196 (208 ± 76.7) minutes (P

CONCLUSION: The presence of recurrent abdominal pain is one of the main indicators for the diagnosis of IH after LRYGB. Patients operated at an early stage, even with negative imaging tests for this disease, benefited from rapid and simple procedures without major complications.RESUMO CONTEXTO: H érnia interna (HI) após bypass gástrico em Y de Roux laparoscópico (BGYRL) é uma complicação importante que desafia o cirurgião devido à sua apresentação inespecífica e necessidade de reparo precoce.

This study examined the safety and efficacy when repairing defects in 2 anatomical structures (hiatus and lower esophageal sphincter) in a concomitant set of procedures in patients with hiatal hernias between 2 and 5 cm. Methods. Prospective data were collected from 99 patients who underwent hiatal hernia repair followed immediately by the TIF procedure (HH + -TIF). GERD-HRQL (Health-Related Quality of Life), RSI (Reflux Symptom Index), and GERSS (Gastroesophageal Reflux Symptom Score) questionnaires were administered before the procedure and mailed at 6 and 12 months. Results. Ninety-nine patients were enrolled, and all w...

AbstractBackgroundHiatal hernia (HH) repair during laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has been advocated to reduce the incidence of postoperative gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and/or intrathoracic migration (ITM). The necessity of intraoperative repair in asymptomatic patients is still controversial. Previous, mid-term results of a prospective, comparative study evaluating posterior cruroplasty concomitant with LSG (group A 48 patients with simple vs. group B 48 reinforced with bioabsorbable mesh) confirmed the safety and effectiveness of simultaneous procedures. Present aim was to report the 60  months fo...

To verify the results of the treatment of post-operative giant hiatal hernia (POGH). The POGH becomes each time more frequent after surgical treatment of the gastroesophageal reflux. Fifteen patients (6 females and 9 males; 43.66 ± 5.05 years old; BMI 22.13 ± 1.92) were referred to our Service, for surgical treatment of a type III POGH 30.4 ± 1.76 months after treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. The need for a reoperation was determined mainly by dysphagia. Reoperation was completed laparoscopically in all patients and the mean postoperative hospital stay was 3.2 ± 1...
