We present a case of a laparoscopic repair of a hital hernia after prior esophagectomy.
Our patient is a 61 year old male with stage III Esophageal Cancer who underwent neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by laparoscopic and thoracoscopic esophagectomy. He presents to us five months post operatively with complaints of dysphagia.
CT scan demonstrated a large hiatal hernia with transeverse colon in the hernia sac. The patient was scheduled for elective repair.
Post operatively, UGI study showed no residual hernia with adequate passage of contrast through the gastric conduit. Our patient did well and was discharged on post operative day 1.
