Abstract

Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is the treatment of choice for medically refractive gastroesophageal reflux disease. Cecal herniation is an exceedingly rare complication of this procedure. We report the case of a 51-year-old woman who presented 2 months after a successful laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication with heartburn and epigastric pain that radiated to her back. Abdominal films showed an air-filled loop in the left upper quadrant. At surgery, the patient had a redundant loop of cecum, which had herniated through the foramen of Winslow over the stomach and was positioned beneath the left hemidiaphragm. The cecum was not ischemic. A right hemicolectomy was performed to prevent recurrence. The patient recovered fully and has had no further problems. This is the first report of such a case.
