Robot-assisted Toupet fundoplication and associated cholecys
Giant hiatus hernia is defined as migration of >30% of the stomach with or without other intra-abdominal organs into the chest. Situs Viscerum Inversus is a rare congenital condition in which the major visceral organs are reversed from their normal arrangement; they are translated (completely or partially) on the opposite side of the body. Diagnosis is often incidental.

A 63-year-old woman with Situs Viscerum Inversus was diagnosed with giant sliding hiatus hernia. We performed a Robot-assisted procedure of reduction of hiatal hernia in abdomen and Toupet fundoplication with Bio A mesh placement and gastropexy procedure associated to cholecystectomy. The operation time was of 190 minutes. The patient was discharged on third postoperative day after X-ray check and he tolerated a solid food.
