Review

  • Hiatal Hernia: herniation of abdominal contents through the esophageal hiatus of the diaphragm

  • Four types of Hiatal Hernias categorized by anatomical relationships of critical structures

  • Barium Swallow is the initial test of choice and often all that is needed to diagnose

  • Important to distinguish between Type I and Types IIIV because they have different management

  • If Type IIIV, look for volvulus and obstruction
