Hiatal Hernia and GERD

Symptoms from an uncomplicated paraesophageal hernia usually develop in adult life and may consist of a sense of pressure in the lower chest after eating and occasionally palpitations, due to cardiac arrhythmias . All of these are pressure phenomena, caused by the enlargement of the herniated gastric pouch when food displaces the fundic (stomachs) air bubble. Since complications are frequent in paraesophageal hiatal hernias, even in the absence of symptoms, operative repair is indicated in most cases. The usual method is to return the herniated stomach to the abdomen and affix it with sutures to the posterior rectus sheath ( anterior gastroplexy). The enlarged hiatus is closed snugly around the gastroesophageal junction with interrupted sutures. It is unnecessary to excise (cut out) the hernia sac. The results of surgical management are generally excellent.
