Robotic Repair of Congenital Paraesophageal Hiatal Hernia

By Daniel A. DeUgarte, Ronald B. Hirschl and James D. Geiger


Abstract Congenital paraesophageal hiatal hernias are rare and can be associated with gastric incarceration, volvulus, mucosal ulceration, and anemia. Primary repair of the hernia and fundoplication are recommended. In this paper, we report a case of a 3-year-old child with abdominal pain who was noted to have a paraesophageal hiatal hernia with partial gastric volvulus. A 5 mm robot platform was utilized to facilitate hernia sac dissection, hiatal repair, and fundoplication
