BackgroundFailure of hiatal closure has proven to be the most frequent complication leading to revisional surgery after primary failed open or laparoscopic antireflux surgery. To prevent hiatal hernia recurrence some authors recommend the use of prosthetic meshes for reinforcement of the hiatal crura. The aim of the present prospective study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a circular hiatal onlay mesh prosthesis applied during laparoscopic refundoplication after primary failed… 
Severe complication of laparoscopic mesh hiatoplasty for paraesophageal hernia
TLDR
One patient developed a severe aortal bleeding 1, 2, and 3 weeks after the laparoscopic mono-phase mesh repair, and three years later, the follow-up showed a satisfied patient (GIQLI 127).
Influence of the size of the hiatus on the rate of reherniation after laparoscopic fundoplication and refundopilication with mesh hiatoplasty
TLDR
In primary intervention, recurrence of hiatal hernia is more likely the larger the HSA is, and the size of the hiatus is a major contributing factor to the possibility of reherniation.
Hiatal Hernioplasty with a Novel Composite Mesh Design: Results of a Multicenter Study after Two- Years Follow-up
TLDR
This newly designed prosthetic mesh offers easy laparoscopic implantation with acceptable recurrence and complications, and additional studies are needed to determine the most appropriate material and shape to cover hiatal defects.
Giant hiatal hernias: direct hiatus closure has an acceptable recurrence rate
TLDR
Based on the findings of this retrospective study, the laparoscopic treatment of giant hernias with direct hiatal closure seems to be a safe and effective procedure and can be lowered by complying with several crucial surgical principles.
Biologic Keyhole Mesh in Hiatal Hernia Repair
TLDR
The traditional belief that keyhole mesh has a higher incidence of dysphagia was not evident in this series of patients who underwent laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair with novel placement of keyhole biologic mesh.
A retrospective multicenter analysis on redo-laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery: conservative or conversion fundoplication?
TLDR
According to this study, in terms of recurrence of symptoms, Toupet fundoplication is a superior ARS technique compared to Nissen for redo-fundoplication, and should be considered in redo interventions for patients who initially underwent ARS with NISSen fundolication.
A simplified technique for intrathoracic stomach repair: laparoscopic fundoplication with Vicryl mesh and BioGlue crural reinforcement
TLDR
Vicryl mesh secured with BioGlue is a simple and easy method for reinforcing the crural closure during laparoscopic repair of an intrathoracic stomach and the recurrence rate at 1 year is low and comparable with that of other series using biologic mesh securedwith sutures or tacks.
Hiatal Mesh Repair—Current Status
TLDR
It is supported the use of HMR when performed by skilled foregut surgeons, as complications described occurred more frequently in the earliest cases of the series, and HMR should be probably used selectively.
Controversies Regarding Mesh Implantation for Hiatal Reinforcement in GERD and Hiatal Hernia Surgery
TLDR
It is the opinion of the authors that permanent mesh should not be placed for hiatal reinforcement under any circumstance due to the potentially devastating consequences of erosion or frozen hiatus.

Laparoscopic refundoplication with prosthetic hiatal closure for recurrent hiatal hernia after primary failed antireflux surgery.
TLDR
Laroscopic refundoplication with prosthetic hiatal closure is a safe and effective procedure for preventing recurrent intrathoracic wrap herniation, with good to excellent functional outcome for a complete follow-up of 1 year.
Prosthetic closure of the esophageal hiatus in large hiatal hernia repair and laparoscopic antireflux surgery
TLDR
Laparoscopic large hiatal/paraesophageal hernia repair with prosthetic meshes as well as laparoscopic antireflux surgery with prosthetics hiatAl closure are safe and effective procedures to prevent hiatAL hernia recurrence and/or postoperative intrathoracic wrap migration, with low complication rates.
Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication with prosthetic hiatal closure reduces postoperative intrathoracic wrap herniation: preliminary results of a prospective randomized functional and clinical study.
TLDR
Laroscopic Nissen fundoplication with prosthetic cruroplasty is an effective procedure to reduce the incidence of postoperative hiatal hernia recurrence and intrathoracic wrap herniation after laparoscopic antireflux surgery.
Laparoscopic mesh repair antireflux surgery for treatment of large hiatal hernia.
TLDR
The mesh repair antireflux surgery is a good alternative for closing the diaphragmatic defect in large hiatal hernias or to correct this problem in case of recurrence or Barrett's esophagus.
Management of intrathoracic stomach with polypropylene mesh prosthesis reinforced transabdominal hiatus hernia repair.
Laparoscopic fundoplication failures: patterns of failure and response to fundoplication revision.
TLDR
Laroscopic fundoplication failure is infrequent in experienced hands; the rate may be further reduced by extensive esophageal mobilization, secure diaphragmatic closure, esphageal lengthening (applied selectively), and avoidance of events leading to increased intraabdominal pressure.
Laparoscopic repair of large type III hiatal hernia: objective followup reveals high recurrence rate.
A prospective, randomized trial of laparoscopic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) patch repair vs simple cruroplasty for large hiatal hernia.
TLDR
The use of prosthetic reinforcement of cruroplasty in large hiatal hernias may prevent hernia recurrences and the cost of the repair was $960 +/- $70 more in the group with the prosthesis.
