ZweiChirurgen with publication on diaphragmatic hernias

Together with colleagues from Switzerland and Germany, PD Dr Hoffmann and Prof Dr Kirchhoff were able to publish a high-ranking analysis of diaphragmatic hernia surgery with and without mesh for reflux disease in the journal «Hernia». Result: Operations on diaphragmatic hernias have a lower risk of recurrence if the suture on the diaphragm is reinforced with a mesh.
