Abstract

The purpose of this study is to assess the long-term outcomes after surgical repair of intrathoracic stomach. Prospectively collected data was retrospectively reviewed. Patients underwent a phone questionnaire 1 year postoperatively to assess gastroesophageal reflux disease-related symptoms and surgical satisfaction. In addition, objective evaluation for integrity of hiatal hernia repair was undertaken either by esophagram or endoscopy. Any recurrence was considered a failure. Forty-one patients underwent surgical repair of a large paraesophageal hernia with intrathoracic stomach during the study period. Thirty-four patients underwent a laparoscopic repair, and seven patients underwent a transthoracic repair. An antireflux procedure was performed on 28 patients, and 13 patients had only hernia reduction and hiatal closure. In the laparoscopic group, two patients required conversion to open laparotomy, as one was unable to tolerate the pneumoperitoneum, and the other had mediastinal bleeding. Thirty-eight (93%) were available for 1-year follow-up. There were three (7.8%) recurrences, one requiring emergency transabdominal repair, and the other two being asymptomatic 1-cm recurrences. All patients report a high degree of satisfaction with surgery. There is a high incidence of short esophagus in patients with intrathoracic stomach. The surgical repair is safe and durable, with high patient satisfaction at 1-year follow-up.
