Three patients from an overall experience of more than 250 laparoscopic Nissen fundoplications have undergone further surgery for stenosis of the esophageal hiatus. This complication may be associated with diathermy dissection of the esophagus during laparoscopic mobilization. (Arch Surg. 1995;130:1014-1016)
