- •Emergent hiatal hernia repair is historically a morbid procedure.
- •Mortality rates were low across all datasets, but higher than for elective repair.
- •Complication rates and number of comorbidities were higher for those who died.
- •Most individuals who had emergent surgery received a minimally invasive repair.
- •Open surgery is independently associated with mortality after hiatal hernia repair.
