Clinical Trial

Biologic Versus Synthetic Mesh for Paraesophageal Hernia

Study Description

Biologic Versus Synthetic Mesh for Treatment of Paraesophageal Hernia

The investigators propose a randomized, single blinded controlled trial to compare the use of synthetic versus biologic mesh in hiatal hernia repair, two currently accepted standard of care surgical modalities. The investigators hypothesize that use of synthetic mesh will have lower recurrence at these time points compared to use of biologic mesh.
