BackgroundRecurrent hiatal hernia with or without intrathoracic wrap migration (“slipping Nissen”) is one of the most common complications after laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF). Therefore, we decided to reinforce the hiatal crura using a prostetic mesh prothesis in an attempt to reduce recurrent hiatal hernia.MethodsThe current nonrandomized study compares the surgical outcome, including quality of life data [Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index (GIQLI)] and subjective degree of… Expand
