We present the case of a recurrent intrathoracic herniation after Nissen fundoplication for GERD and redo procedure with Crurasoft® mesh crural reinforcement for recurrent GERD and intrathoracic migration. The patient had a BMI of 36 and presented with recurrent GERD and regurgitations. Intraoperatively, considering the patient’s BMI and extensive tissue scarring due to the previous mesh repair, a Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy is privileged over a redo Nissen fundoplication.
