Mesh Versus No Mesh for Cruroplasty
Journal of laparoendoscopic & advanced surgical techniques. Part A
biologic mesh; composite mesh; cruroplasty; hiatal hernia; paraesophageal hernia
This review describes the evolution of hiatal hernia repair for the past several decades: From the use of a primary tissue repair only, the subsequent inclusion of synthetic mesh and its complications, to current day indications for mesh use. We will highlight the recent research in biologic and composite meshes as well as the ongoing limitations in studying their efficacy. Finally, we will describe our institutional indications and surgical technique practices in the utilization of biologic mesh.
