One of the more common benign esophageal disorders is a hiatal hernia. A type 1 hiatal hernia is a condition in which the stomach pushes through the opening in the diaphragm where the esophagus joins the stomach. The other type of hiatal hernia is called a paraesophageal hernia. This condition occurs when a portion of the stomach pushes up into the chest adjacent to the esophagus. The most common symptom of hiatal hernia is heartburn or regurgitation – a backflow of stomach content into the esophagus.
