Paraesophageal herniation is a potentially devastating condition of the gastroesophageal hiatus commonly manifesting in patients of advanced age with other significant medical problems. Surgical treatment is generally indicated to avoid catastrophe related to gastric volvulus. The operative approach utilized should be individualized to the patient's pathophysiologic condition rather than attempting to apply a single repair for all patients with this heterogeneous clinical problem.
