Abstract

Since the introduction of the Angelchik prosthesis for the repair of hiatal hernias in 1979, there have been no previous formal reports of major problems with this procedure. The case reported here demonstrates that the device may be associated with disastrous complications and the authors suggest its use be reevaluated.
