Abstract

Obesity is associated with the development of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and hiatal hernia (HH). This study aimed to assess practice patterns regarding concomitant HH repair (HHR) during laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). The incidence of concomitant HHR with LSG or LRYGB was analyzed using the 2015 Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program database. One hundred thirty thousand, seven hundred seventy-two patients underwent RYGB (30.5%) and LSG (69.5%). Concomitant HHR was more common, despite less GERD, in SG patients compared to RYGB (21.0% vs 10.8%, pā€‰<ā€‰0.0001; adjusted OR 2.14, 95% CI 2.06-2.22). This marked difference in the intraoperative management of HH during bariatric surgeries may hinder our ability to evaluate the long-term effects of bariatric surgery on GERD.
