Patients with paraesophageal hernia (PEH) are usually symptomatic with GERD or obstructive symptoms, such as dysphagia. The underlying surgical principles for successful repair include reduction of hernia contents, removal of the hernia sac, closure of the hiatal defect, and an antireflux procedure. In this video, we show the case of a large paraesophageal hernia in a young male patient aged 40 presenting with dyspnea, thoracic pain and iterative dysphagia.
