Case Report

Sequential Herniation of Stomach, Then Colon Through the Aortic Hiatus

Authors: ROBERT B. WAGNER MD, MICHAEL J. BARRY MD, MARUTHI S. MANNEY MD

Abstract

ABSTRACT: A patient with a large paraesophageal hernia had a Nissen fundoplication via laparoscopy. He returned a year later with the transverse colon herniated into the chest. At operation, the hernia ostium was found to be the aortic hiatus. We believe that the original ostium was missed because of the limited exposure of the video-laparoscopic technique.
