The laparoscopic approach is considered the technique of choice for the repair of large hiatal hernia leading to low morbidity and mortality rates. We describe our approach for the laparoscopic repair of giant hiatus hernia. This entails full dissection of the hernia sac from the mediastinum, hiatal repair and the construction of a fundoplication.
