The augmentation of hiatal repair for large hiatus hernia with mesh is controversial. There is some evidence that recurrence rates are less with mesh repair; however, there is a risk of mesh erosion. Complicated erosion may require complex revisional surgery and oesophagogastric resection. We present a novel approach to the treatment of oesophageal mesh erosion, by utilising a combined approach of endoscopy and intragastric laparoscopy. The symptomatic relief from this procedure may obviate the need for foregut resection in some patients.
