    Abstract

    Approximately 20% of patients develop delayed gastric emptying (DGE) following large hiatus hernia repair. This incurs short-term morbidity, with our recent study demonstrating poorer outcomes at 12 months post-surgery. However, the longer-term consequences of DGE are unclear. Here, we report the impact of DGE following laparoscopic repair of large hiatus hernia on quality of life, gastrointestinal symptomatology, daily function and overall satisfaction at 3 and 5 years follow-up.
