Abstract

Recurrence of hiatal hernia after surgical repair remains of the most challenging problems in general thoracic surgery. Multiple adjuncts to crural closure have been suggested and implemented in the past three decades. Measuring and comparing rates of recurrence between methods of repair is made challenging by inconsistent definitions and follow-up periods between studies.
