The incidence of laparoscopic hiatal hernia recurrence has recently been questioned. The results with open repair have been accepted, but increasingly there is interest in mesh reinforcement when performing laparoscopic surgery. Several small series of mesh repair suggest efficacy. Further study of the causes of failure after the laparoscopic approach is warranted and may assist in determining the place of prosthetic reinforcement.
