Diseases

Sliding Hiatal Hernia

Sliding hiatal hernias are those in which the junction of the esophagus and stomach, referred to as the gastro- esophageal junction, and part of the stomach protrude into the chest.

SYMPTOMS

  • Heartburn.
  • Regurgitation of food or liquids into the mouth.
  • Backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus (acid reflux)
  • Difficulty swallowing.
  • Chest or abdominal pain.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Vomiting of blood or passing of black stools, which may indicate gastrointestinal bleeding.

CAUSES

It is usually caused by a weakness of the diaphragm muscle. You may not have any symptoms with your hiatal hernia. However, sometimes,hiatal hernias may cause acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux (gerd), which is when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus.
