Hiatal Hernia

The condition of Hiatal hernia happens when the upper part of the stomach moves upwards to the chest cavity through an opening in the diaphragm. The opening in the diaphragm is known as diaphragmatic hiatus or esophageal hiatus. A hiatal hernia occurs due to the weakness of the walls of the diaphragm. The weakness is due to the increased abdominal pressure in the stomach. The reports show that the hiatal hernia makes Lower esophageal sphincter(LES) weak and leads to acid reflux.
