Abstract

Minimally invasive oesophagectomy has become popular, but studies showed a higher rate of postoperative hiatus hernia compared with open oesophagectomy. Our video presents the laparoscopic biosynthetic mesh repair of a symptomatic giant hiatus hernia in a 71-year-old man who had undergone minimally invasive oesophagectomy one year earlier for distal adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus. The operative time was 120 minutes. The patient started oral intake on postoperative day one and was discharged on postoperative day three. Postoperative computed tomography at six months showed no signs of recurrence. In the setting of a symptomatic hiatus hernia post-minimally invasive oesophagectomy, we suggest an initial laparoscopic approach, because of its countless advantages.
