A hiatal hernia involves the herniation of the stomach above the diaphragm. Preoperative work-up generally invoves the use of upper endoscopy and an upper GI study. Emergent repair is generally indicated when volvulus, bleeding, obstruction, strangulation, or perforation are encountered. Elective repair is generally performed with subacute symptoms, whereas, prophylactic repair is generally indicated if a greater than ten year life expectancy is anticipated. The patient presented underwent a laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair with subsequent recurrence and revision.
