    Durability of laparoscopic repair of paraesophageal hernia.

    Ann Surg 228: 528-535, 1998.

       


    Laparoscopic repair of paraesophageal hernia is becoming more common. There is little information regarding the duration and long-term benefits of the repair and the benefit of routine inclusion of an anti-reflux procedure. The primary repair that would minimize hernia recurrence and the results of medium-term follow-up of paraesophageal hernia repair to verify durability and assess the effect of inclusion of an antireflux procedure were presented.

       


    Laparoscopic repair of paraesophageal hernia was durable in most patients. Inclusion of an anti-reflux procedure had no effect on the incidence of reflux symptoms. Morbidity was low, with only two patients experiencing
    dysphagia.
