This study reviews a single institution's experience with simultaneous (redo) laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and primary large paraesophageal hernia (PEH) repair. A retrospective review was done of all 13 patients who underwent simultaneous LRYGB and large PEH repair between February 2014 and December 2017 at our institution. All patients had a large type III or IV PEH. All patients underwent primary crural repair, without the use of a reinforcing mesh. No patients underwent additional surgery for obstruction of the gastric pouch or for symptomatic recurrence of PEH. No mortality was reported. Our study highlights that simultaneous primary large PEH repair and primary or redo LRYGB is safe and feasible.

Morgagni hernia is rare clinical entity accounting for 3% of all surgically treated diaphragmatic hernias. Similarly, paraesophageal hernia constitutes only 5% of all hiatal hernia. The co-existing of...
Laparoscopic groin hernia repair has become increasingly popular. In Denmark, all groin hernia repairs are registered in the Danish Hernia Database. However, many surgical technical parameters are not...
The purpose of this randomized study is to determine whether a type of mesh derived from a layer of pig small intestine (SIS) is of benefit in treating paraesophageal hernias versus standa...
The laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias is still a controversial therapeutic option. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic repair we compare the results of the open and la...
Ventral hernias are a common disease and one half of all individuals are born with or will acquire a ventral hernia in their lifetime. Repair of ventral hernias may be associated with sign...
The effectiveness of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair still remains unclear. During a one year period a total of 1208 inguinal hernias in 952 patients were consecutively operated using ...
The study will examine potential biological and genetic mechanisms leading to hiatal and paraesophageal hernia formation in predisposed individuals. It is expected that these patients wil...
STOMACH herniation located at or near the diaphragmatic opening for the ESOPHAGUS, esophageal hiatus. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is above the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a SLIDING HIATAL HERNIA. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is below the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a PARAESOPHAGEAL HIATAL HERNIA.
A pelvic hernia through the obturator foramen, a large aperture in the hip bone normally covered by a membrane. Obturator hernia can lead to intestinal incarceration and INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
Twisting of the STOMACH that may result in gastric ISCHEMIA and GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION. It is often associated with DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
