Nissen fundoplication is a commonly used antireflux operation. After this operation, symptoms such as dysphagia, inability to belch and vomit, and gas bloating are frequently reported in the literature. The objective of this film is to demonstrate a surgical intervention carried out in a 78-year-old patient who had benefited from a Nissen-Rossetti fundoplication for the management of a gastroesophageal reflux disease associated to a voluminous type I hiatal hernia 15 years ago.
