Abstract

Persistent postoperative dysphagia (PPD) is one of the most troublesome complications of laparoscopic antireflux surgery. Hiatal stenosis, although rare, is a serious complication and is one of the causes of PPD after antireflux procedures. In the 2 presented patients, progressive dysphagia started immediately after the antireflux procedure and did not respond to esophageal dilations. The cause of dysphagia in both patients was hiatal stenosis and was corrected laparoscopically.
