Abstract

A paraesophageal hiatal hernia is caused by a defect in the anterolateral aspect of the diaphragmatic esophageal hiatus. Most commonly, the stomach migrates into the hernia sac. Although most patients are asymptomatic, repair is advised at the time of the diagnosis because of the high morbidity and mortality associated with surgery for the complications of paraesophageal hiatal hernias. However, because of the morbidity associated with conventional surgical techniques, there has been great reluctance to subject an asymptomatic patient to surgical repair. We report a minimally invasive technique for the reduction of a paraesophageal hiatal hernia and repair of the diaphragmatic hiatal defect. Video laparoscopy, with its attendant low morbidity, may be the ideal technique for the repair of paraesophageal hiatal hernias.
