Epublication WebSurg.com, Mar 2018;18(03). URL: http://websurg.com/doi/vd01en5189
We present a Collis lengthening procedure followed by a Nissen fundoplication for a patient with severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and sliding hiatal hernia with shortened esophagus. Intraoperative endoscopy shows the Z line at the level of the mediastinum, giving the indication for an esophageal lengthening procedure. The hiatal repair is reinforced by means of an absorbable mesh placement.
