This video demonstrates a laproscopic repair of type II paraesophageal hernia. The surgeon demonstrates the approach to dissection and resection of the hernia sac and reduction of the sac and esophagus into the abdomen. The defect in the hiatus is closed with pledgets and a routine floppy Nissen is constructed with three sutures.
