I read with great pleasure the ‘‘Letters to the editor’’ by Dr. Fourtanier and Dr. Reardon [1,2] regarding the problem of hiatal closure and particularly the definition and measurement of the hiatal defect.

Firstly, the length of the crura is measured in centimetres beginning at the crural commisure up to the edge where the Pars flaccida begins (radius R).Expand
