Hiatal Hernia following minimally invasive esophagectomy is a serious complication, It is usually asymptomatic but it can result in catastrophic complications such as gastric conduit necrosis or strangulation of the herniated viscera. In this video we present the case of a 64 y/o male who underwent laparoscopic repair of a hiatal hernia following minimally invasive esophagectomy. The patient tolerated the procedure well and had no recurrence after two years follow up.
