Surgical treatment of hiatal hernia by routine and laparoscopic methods

Ruslan Batyrbievich Beretar’; Ruslan Shumafovich Siyukhov; Vladimir Moiseevich Durleshter; Igor Yurievich Svechkar’; Mikhail Bykov;

Anti-reflux surgery was performed in 302 patients with a type 1 hiatal hernia from 2008 to 2016. The patients were divided into two groups. The first group comprised 241 patients who underwent anti-reflux laparoscopy, and the second group (control group) comprised 61 patients who underwent routine laparotomy. The outcomes were evaluated at 1, 6, 12, and 24 months postoperatively. The results were good to excellent in both groups, but laparoscopy was more advantageous in terms of quality of life as indicated by the Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index and 36-Item Short Form Survey.
