#### Summary points Hiatus hernia is a condition involving herniation of the contents of the abdominal cavity, most commonly the stomach, through the diaphragm into the mediastinum. [...] Key Method#### Sources and selection criteria We based this review on articles identified through a search of PubMed using the term “hiatal hernia” on 12 August 2014.Expand
The management of hiatal hernia: an update on diagnosis and treatment
TLDR
This narrative review presents new data on the diagnosis and management of hiatal hernia, and presents the imaging methods used for its diagnosis, as well as the medical and surgical treatment currently available. Expand
Hiatal Hernia as the Cause of G-Induced Abdominal Pain.
TLDR
An F-18 pilot who experienced worsening epigastric abdominal pain proportionate to the amount of accelerative force experienced, he was found to have a sliding hiatal hernia and underwent a Nissen fundoplication to repair it. Expand
Hiatus Hernia in Nigerians – An Endoscopic Study
Hiatus hernia is considered to be rare in Nigerians. Older radiological studies utilizing barium suggest 0.39% prevalence. More recent retrospective endoscopic studies in Nigeria suggest that theExpand
Chest Pain: A Relatively Benign Symptom of Type IV Hiatal Hernia
TLDR
An 81-year-old female with a past medical history of gastroesophageal reflux disease, deep venous thrombosis, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary artery disease, and cerebrovascular accident is treated conservatively with proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy for hiatal hernia. Expand
Is fundoplication advisable in repair of para-oesophageal hernia? “Little operation” or “big operation”?
TLDR
The case for routine fundoplication when repairing hiatus hernia, unless otherwise contraindicated, is supported, due to the configuration of para-oesophageal hiatus hernias and a diminution of reflux symptoms as the hernia progresses. Expand
Hiatal hernia as a rare cause of cardiac complications - case based review of the literature.
TLDR
The main aim of the study is to present the rare case of a patient with gastrothorax due to hiatal hernia which caused cardiac arrest, and to provide a literature-based review of the cardiac aspects of hiatAL hernia. Expand
Utility of endoscopy in the diagnosis of hiatus hernia and correlation with GERD
TLDR
The clinical features of hiatal hernias, its relationship with reflux disease, and the use of endoscopy in diagnosing hiatals as well as postoperative complications following foregut surgery are described. Expand
Esophageal hiatal hernia: risk, diagnosis and management
TLDR
This review summarizes updated evidence of pathophysiology, risk factors, diagnosis and management of hiatal hernias and indicates esophagectomy has chances of post-operative morbidity, while minimally invasive laparoscopy entails fewer postoperative difficulties and better visualization of hernia and related vascular damages. Expand
Minimally invasive surgery: hiatal hernia repair—a narrative review
TLDR
Expert opinion suggests that fundoplication should accompany crural repair in order to optimize reflux-related outcomes and to decrease recurrence risk, though there remains a need for further research into this topic. Expand
Classification and Evaluation of Diaphragmatic Hernias
TLDR
Through a discussion of the anatomy of the diaphragm and the esophageal hiatus, the pathophysiology of these hernias is more easily understood and a fundamental guide for their classification and evaluation is provided. Expand

Diaphragmatic hernia: diagnostic approaches with review of the literature.
TLDR
This work evaluated the imaging findings of 21 diaphragmatic hernia cases and found that ultrasound (US) is a useful tool on DH, on traumatic DH cases especially and plain radiography is firstly preferred technique on DH. Expand
Relationship of overweight to hiatus hernia and reflux oesophagitis.
TLDR
The results support the view that adiposity is associated with both sliding pause hernia and reflux oesophagitis and that hiatus hernia plays a role in the development of refluxOesophageal reflux. Expand
Primary paraesophageal hernia in children.
TLDR
Paraesophageal hernias in children are uncommon and most likely caused by a congenital defect and should include an antireflux procedure. Expand
Association of obesity with hiatal hernia and esophagitis
TLDR
Excessive body weight is a significant independent risk factor for hiatal hernia and is significantly associated with esophagitis, largely through an increased incidence of hiatAL hernia. Expand
The Impact of Scoliosis Among Patients with Giant Paraesophageal Hernia
TLDR
Kyphoscoliosis may contribute to the development and progression of paraesophageal hernias and surgeons approaching paraesophileal hernia repair should be aware of the increased pulmonary morbidity and the postoperative care required in managing patients. Expand
Risk factors in the aetiology of hiatus hernia: a meta-analysis
TLDR
The prevalence of HH increases with age and increasing BMI and HH is more common among men, and no significant evidence of publication bias was noted. Expand
Hiatal hernia size is the dominant determinant of esophagitis presence and severity in gastroesophageal reflux disease
OBJECTIVE:Although reflux esophagitis is a multifactorial disease, the relative importance of these pathogenetic factors has not been clearly established. In this study, regression analysis was usedExpand
Guidelines for the management of hiatal hernia
The guidelines for the management of hiatal hernia are a series of systematically developed statements to assist physicians’ and patients’ decisions about the appropriate use of laparoscopic surgeryExpand
The effect of hiatus hernia on gastro-oesophageal junction pressure
TLDR
Simulation of hernia reduction by algebraically summing the proximal segment pressures with the hiatal canal pressures restored normal maximal pressure, radial asymmetry, and dynamic responses of the gastro-oesophageal junction. Expand
Waist belt and central obesity cause partial hiatus hernia and short-segment acid reflux in asymptomatic volunteers
TLDR
In asymptomatic volunteers, waist belt and central obesity cause partial hiatus herniation and short-segment acid reflux, providing a plausible explanation for the high incidence of inflammation and metaplasia and occurrence of neoplasia at the GOJ in subjects without a history of reflux symptoms.
