Hiatal Hernia Repair Options

Hiatal Hernia Repair with Bard® AlloMax™ Surgical Graft

The AlloMax™ Surgical Graft can be used for a tension-free repair technique to repair or reinforce the repair of esophageal hiatal defects during open or 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 products can also be used to reinforce or buttress the hiatal hernia that has been closed primarily with sutures. There is always a chance for complications with surgery such as infection, hematoma (blood collection), pain or hernia recurrence. Your physician will discuss these with you prior to surgery.

Hundreds of thousands of hernia repair operations are performed each year both with and without surgical mesh, and patients generally recover quickly and do well after surgery. However, all surgical procedures are associated with some risk. Speak to your surgeon prior to surgery about possible risks and complications. Some of the possible complications include adverse reactions to the mesh, adhesions (bands of scar-like tissue) and injuries to nearby organs, nerves or blood vessels. Other complications of hernia repair can occur with or without the mesh, including infection, chronic pain and hernia recurrence.
