Hiatal Hernia

Description of the condition

A hiatal hernia is a condition in which the upper part of the stomach protrudes through the diaphragm's esophageal opening into the chest cavity. This can lead to various symptoms and complications.


  • Sliding hernia
  • Paraesophageal hernia
  • Complicated hernia


  • Heartburn
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty swallowing


Hiatal hernia can be caused by weakness of the diaphragm muscles or increased pressure in the abdominal cavity, for example, due to obesity or pregnancy.


The diagnosis of hiatal hernia is usually based on symptoms, physical examination findings, and the results of additional tests, such as X-rays and esophagogastroduodenoscopy.


Treatment of hiatal hernia may involve lifestyle changes, medication, and in some cases, surgical intervention.


For the prevention of hiatal hernia, it is important to control weight, avoid overeating, not wear tight clothing, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.


To diagnose and treat hiatal hernia, it is advisable to consult a gastroenterologist or surgeon.
