Examination of Intra-institutional Method of Diaphragmatic Hernia Repair Post Transhiatal Esophagectomy Compared to Traditional Repairs: A Retrospective Chart Review

Trans-hiatal esophagectomy is a procedure commonly done at CINJ/RWJ for the management of esophageal tumors. A known, but infrequent complication of this surgery are diaphragmatic herniations. We have developed a novel technique to address this and we aim to examine our experience using this technique with respect to its effectiveness and outcomes associated with it.
