Hiatus Hernia

Back to Library

In hiatus hernia the stomach moves into the thorax.
Hiatus hernia, in which the upper part of the stomach moves through the diaphragmatic oesophageal
hiatus into the thoracic cavity, is a common and important condition.
Patients often complain of symptoms of reflux oesophagitis, and there may be peptic ulceration
in the intrathoracic part of the stomach and lower oesophagus.
In sliding hiatus hernia the stomach herniates through the diaphragmatic hiatus through which the lower oesophagus normally passes.
In paraoesophageal hiatus hernia the stomach protrudes through a separate defect alongside the oesophagus.
