Hiatal Hernia Repair Options
Hiatal Hernia Repair with Bard® Crurasoft® Patch
The Bard Crurasoft Patch can be used for a tension-free repair technique to repair esophageal hiatal defects during laparoscopic fundoplications and parasophageal hernia repairs. Fundoplication is a technique where part of the stomach is wrapped around the esophagus and sewn into place. The patch can also be used to reinforce or buttress the hiatal hernia that has been closed primarily with sutures. This adds strength to the repair. Like any surgery, there is always a chance for complications, like infection or hernia recurrence. Your physician will discuss these with you prior to surgery.
