The use of mesh for laparoscopic repair of large hiatal hernias may reduce recurrence rates in comparison with primary suture repair. However, there is a potential risk of mesh-related oesophageal complications due to prosthesis erosion. The aim of this study was to evaluate a lightweight polypropylene mesh (TiMesh) repair of hiatal hernias with particular reference to intraluminal erosion. Data were collected prospectively on 18 consecutive patients undergoing elective laparoscopic repair of a… CONTINUE READING
