Abstract

Background: The incidence of laparoscopic hiatal hernia recurrence is less than ideal. The reasons are more theoretical than objective, as the literature has little data in support of specific mechanisms of recurrence. Method: A recent literature review using all Internet-avail able, English-language articles on laparoscopic hernia repair was completed. Results: A multitude of mechanisms of recurrence are suggested, but only surgeon inexperience, postoperative vomiting, heavy lifting, and retention of the hernia sac are supported by data. Conclusion: The inci dence of hiatal hernia recurrence has stabilized. The role of an onlay mesh prosthesis for the prevention of hiatal hernia recurrence is under investigation, and long-term results are awaited.
