Laparoscopic repair of a paraesophageal hiatal hernia with gastric volvulus.Hepatogastroenterology. 1998 Jan-Feb; 45(19):303-6.H
We report the case of a massive paraesophageal hiatal hernia with gastric volvulus which presented with the symptom of a precordial sense of pressure for over two years, which was successfully treated with laparoscopic surgery. The patient is presently in good condition, without any recurrence of either the hiatal hernia or other symptoms one year after surgery. This approach is considered to be a safe and effective procedure, and it also provides for rapid recovery from the operation.
