INTENDED AUDIENCE 

An interactive symposium designed for general and cardiothoracic surgeons involved in hiatal/PEH repairs

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this educational program is to facilitate discussion on successful solutions for managing robotic-assisted hiatal hernia repair and to understand the proper use of mesh materials. Discussion will include review of past and current techniques for hiatal hernia repair including collis gastroplasty and diaphragmatic relaxing incisions, clinical data, as well as the science and technology of products. From the conference room, surgeons will see live cases performed.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

• Review current literature for hernia repair techniques, materials, and patient management strategies

• Gain new insights into advanced surgical techniques for hiatal/PEH repair

• Demonstrate use of BD products in hernia repair
