Abstract: To verify the results of the treatment of post-operative giant hiatal hernia (POGH). The POGH becomes each time more frequent after surgical treatment of the gastroesophageal reflux. Fifteen patients (6 females and 9 males; 43.66 +/- 5.05 years old; BMI 22.13 +/- 1.92) were referred to our Service, for surgical treatment of a type III POGH 30.4 +/- 1.76 months after treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. The need for a reoperation was determined mainly by dysphagia. Reoperation was completed laparoscopically in all patients and the mean postoperative hospital stay was 3.2 +/- 1.2 days (range, 1-6 days). Mortality was 0% and there were not postoperative complications. They became asymptomatic along follow-up of 2.86 +/- 1.40 years. Around 1 year from the procedure, patients were submitted to control exams and barium esophagogram revealed well positioned esophago-gastric junction and signs of intact fundoplicature, the same observation having been done at esophageal endoscopy. Esophageal manometry showed preserved peristaltism, increase of resting pressure and extension of the intraabdominal LES and significant raise of amplitude of deglutition waves at distal third of the esophagus. No reflux was observed at postoperative 24-hour pH testing. The corrective surgery of POGH can often be completed laparoscopically in experienced hands. Successful results can be obtained performing reduction of the hernia, sac excision, crural repair, anti-reflux procedure and long anterior gastropexy.
