Authors: Boru CE, Termine P, Antypas P, Iossa A, Ciccioriccio MC, De Angelis F, Micalizzi A, Silecchia G Abstract BACKGROUND: Hiatal hernia repair (HHR) is still controversial during bariatric procedures, especially in case of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). AIMS: to report the long-term results of concomitant HHR, evaluating the safety and efficacy of posterior cruroplasty (PC), simple or reinforced with biosynthetic, absorbable Bio-A® mesh (Gore, USA). Primary endpoint: PC's failure, defined as symptomatic HH recurrence, nonresponding to medical treatment and requiring revisional surgery. METHO...

Hiatal hernias are often repaired concurrently with bariatric surgery to reduce risk of GERD-related complications.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is an effective treatment for morbid obesity and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) 1. Despite majority of patients with resolution of GERD after RYGB, some patients will continue to complain of significant, persistent reflux symptomatology or develop de novo symptoms despite aggressive medical management. It ’s true incidence is unknown and one study showed an improvement in GERD but not resolution in 22% of patients after RYGB with GERD2. Possible mechanisms may include primary lower esophageal sphincter incompetence, disruption of the angle of His or development of hiatal hernia...

ConclusionBougie induced perforation is uncommon and occurs after improper manipulation of bougie across the gastroesophageal junction. Acute esophageal angulation and over thrusting of the bougie against closed hiatus can contribute to posterior esophageal perforation. Inspection of the esophagus above the hiatus is essential to avoid missed perforation.

In the paper by Angrisani et  al. [1], the authors tackle an important question, namely, what are the long-term outcomes regarding gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy (SG)? Many surgeons consider GERD to be the Achilles’ heel of the SG, and it is one of the main reasons for conver sion of the SG to other procedures, such as the gastric bypass [2]. The last International Consensus Conference on SG demonstrated>50% of surgeons considered GERD to be a relative contraindication to the SG, and also hiatal hernias (HH) should be repaired when encountered [3].

Many surgeons consider GERD to be the Achilles heel of the SG, and it is one of the main reasons for conversion of the SG to other procedures such as the gastric bypass [2]. The last International Consensus Conference on SG demonstrated that over 50% of surgeons considered GERD to be a relative contrindication to the SG, and also that hiatal hernias (HH) should be repaired when encountered [3].

Abstract Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) has been explored as a revisional option to failed paraesophageal hernia (PEH) repair with fundoplication, particularly in patients suffering from obesity. However, few studies have assessed long-term outcomes of RYGB with revisional PEH repair in regard to acid-suppressing medication use. We retrospectively identified 19 patients who underwent revisional PEH repair with RYGB between 2011 and 2018. The median operative time was 232 minutes with a median hospital length of stay of two days. The median length of follow-up was 24 months. Two patients (10.5%) had complications ...

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.
