This is the case of a 62-year old female patient with a BMI of 35 and a history of high blood pressure, dyslipidemia, and morbid obesity. She underwent a laparoscopic Nissen surgery 8 years earlier and presented with recurrent GERD symptoms. A CT-scan, an endoscopy, and a barium swallow showed a hiatal hernia. It was decided to perform a paraesophageal hernia repair as well as a gastric bypass. A laparoscopic surgery was performed. There were no complications and the patient was discharged on the second postoperative day. An esogastroduodenal contrast examination was performed 1 month after the procedure. It showed the absence of hiatal hernia. The patient was controlled 3 months after surgery and was found asymptomatic with an Excess Weight Loss (EWL) of 42%.
