Presented is a 72 year old woman who underwent a minimally invasive esophagectomy two years previously. She presented to an outside hospital complaining of abdominal pain along with nausea and vomiting. She underwent radiographic studies there including a CT scan which showed an acutely incarcerated paraesophageal hernia consisting of the majority of her colon. She was transferred to our institution where she underwent reduction of the incarcerated colon and repair of the paraesophageal hernia defect with mesh. Patient post operatively was able to tolerate a liquid diet and was discharged home.
