A620 Laparoscopic Hiatal Hernia Repair after Initial Failure of Repair at the Time of Sleeve Gastrectomy

38-year-old female with no symptomatic reflux who underwent a sleeve gastrectomy for morbid obesity. At the time of surgery, she was found to have an approximately 5 cm hiatal hernia, which was repaired posteriorly. Post-operatively, she developed significant nausea and vomiting. Upper GI study and CT scan demonstrated a failure of the hiatal hernia repair with a significant portion of the stomach in the chest. She was taken back to the operating room for repair.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study the hypothesis that children scheduled for ventilation tube insertion (VTI), a surrogate procedure reflecting otitis media (OM) presence, are overweight or obese. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Charts of Israeli children aged 0 to 9 years undergoing VTI with or without adenoidectomy between 9/1/17 and 3/31/19 in a secondary level hospital were retrospectively identified. We compared their mean body mass index (BMI, kg/m2) to the mean BMI of a control group comprised of children who underwent surgeries unrelated to OM (fracture fixation/reduction, inguinal/umbilical hernia repair, me...

Gastric bypasses were the most common bariatric surgery for many years, and long-term complications after gastric bypass are known to be relatively common. Symptomatic hiatal hernia (HH) with pouch migration is a less-known complication. However, when these are symptomatic, they require surgical repair.
