Collis Nissen procedure after lung transplantation and laparoscopic management of mediastinal hematoma
After lung transplantation, GERD causes inflammatory reactions, increasing risks for obliterating bronchiolitis and dysfunctioning graft. Authors first present a laparoscopic Collis Nissen procedure for hiatal hernia and severe esophagitis in a grafted patient. Because of a short esophagus despite extended dissection, a Collis gastroplasty is required. After stapling, cruroplasty is performed, finally followed by a Nissen fundoplication. In case of severe esophagitis, a difficult dissection and inflammatory tissues can lead to more complications such as leak, hemorrhage, slippage, and abscess. Mediastinal hematoma is diagnosed on postoperative day 9, mandating a redo emergency intervention. This rare complication will be managed laparoscopically.

Esophageal peptic stricture and shortened esophagus managed by a laparoscopic Collis-Nissen procedure
This video presents a laparoscopic Collis-Nissen procedure performed in a 64-year-old man presenting with long-standing reflux disease and esophageal peptic stricture. The patient underwent several (>15) endoscopic dilatations that elicit only temporary improvement of dysphagia. Two esophageal stents were placed without significant improvement after removal. The patient was then referred to surgery. The treatment alternatives were esophagectomy or anti-reflux surgery associated with postoperative dilatations. The first choice was to perform an anti-reflux procedure in order to stop a mixed pathological reflux and reduce the risk of re-stricture. Three months after the procedure, an esophageal stent was placed to dilate the stricture.
