Image Description:

Illustration showing normal anatomy of the stomach, and the stomach with paraesophageal and sliding hiatal hernias. The hiatus is the muscular wall that separates the chest cavity from the abdomen and any hernia in this area are known as hiatus or hiatal hernia. The sliding hiatal hernia, the most common kind of hiatal hernia, pushes the stomach and section of the esophagus up into the chest through the hiatus. The less common paraesophageal hernia is more serious, and is characterised by part of the stomach moving through the hiatus and near to the esophagus.
