  • Jameson L. Chassin


Hiatus hernia with reflux esophagitis resistant to conservative management is a clear indication. Successful execution of this operation requires that the esophagus be long enough to suture the esophagogastric junction to the level of the median arcuate ligament without tension (5–7 cm of intra-abdominal esophagus).
