Hiatus Hernia

Hiatus hernia is a condition in which the upper portion of the stomach protrudes into the chest cavity through an opening of the diaphragm called the oesophageal hiatus. This opening usually is large enough to accommodate the oesophagus alone. With weakening and enlargement however, the opening (or herniation) can allow upward passage or even entrapment of the upper stomach above the diaphragm.

Symptoms of hiatus hernia can range from chest pain, heartburn to coughing.
