This video demonstrates a laparoscopic repair of a giant type III paraesophageal hernia with an associated mesenteric-axial gastric volvulus in a 61-year-old woman. Dissection of the hernia sac was difficult because the esophageal hiatus was not very enlarged and the overlying peritoneum was very thickened because of chronic hernia incarceration. Once the stomach was replaced into the peritoneal cavity, mediastinal mobilization of the esophagus up to the pulmonary vein was performed. After crural repair, a standard posterior fundoplication was performed, as the intra-abdominal esophageal length was adequate.
