Parahiatal hernia: Diagnotic dilemma and therapeutic controversy
Para-hiatal hernia is an extremely rare subtype of diaphragmatic hernia with an incidence of 0.2-0.35%.
In contrast with para-oesophageal hernia, the defect in para-hiatal hernia lies between the fibres of left crus, making it a distinct entity from hiatal hernia. Due to similarities with para-oesophageal hernia, its diagnosis is almost never made clinically.
We present a case of intraoperatively diagnosed para-hiatal hernia, which was repaired with meshplasty, followed by fundoplication.
Due to its rare occurrence, a controversy revolves around its management. We have performed a literature review and provided a simplified protocol for the same.
