The readers are provided with an evidence based approach to assist surgeons' decisions in developing a preoperative investigative algorithm prior to offering a surgical solution for either primary or recurrent hiatal hernia surgery based on supporting evidence.
The chapters will further investigate the latest trends in minimally invasive hiatal hernia and antireflux surgery, both for primary and recurrent hernias.
