Hiatal Hernia symptoms

Gastroesophageal reflux is a condition wherein the acidic contents of the stomach pass back into the esophagus causing damage to the lining of his, accompanied by appropriate pain symptoms. Although appear to be linked, one condition does not necessarily lead to the other. Very often in people with hiatal hernia without having GERD and vice versa.

Hernia call passage of the contents of a body cavity, outside it, to the surface of the body or other cavity. Hiatus is opening in the diaphragm – the muscular wall that separates the chest from the abdomen. In this hole passes the esophagus, which shortly after entering the abdominal cavity passes into the stomach. In Hiatal Hernia, the stomach goes through this opening into the chest cavity. There are two main types of hiatal hernia: sliding (axial) and paraesophageal (to the esophagus). In the first case the stomach and esophagus are “crawling” along in the chest cavity as the site of their connection moves above the diaphragm. It’s safest and most common type of hernia.
