Is Hiatal Hernia a Syndrome?


Yes, it is!

This syndrome occurs in the upper abdomen, where the esophagus and stomach meet through an opening (hiatus) in the diaphragm.

Hiatal Hernia Syndrome is distinguished by the fact that the stomach may cause upward pressure against the diaphragm.

This condition can be seen in most people that are overweight due to increased intra-abdominal pressure. An increase in intra-abdominal pressure may also be due to chronic coughing, vomiting, obesity, pregnancy or a mass of the abdomen.
