Primary laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair is associated with up to a 42% recurrence rate. This has led to the use of mesh for crural repair, which has resulted in an improved recurrence rate (0-24%). However, mesh complications have been observed. In this lecture, Professor Lee Swanstrom discusses the types of reconstruction in hiatal hernia repair and presents the benefits and contraindications of mesh use.
