And here are some older images:

Hernia hiati

Hiatus hernia - when part of the stomach has slided up into the thoracal cavity - is a very common finding, especially in elderly people. Very often a hiatushernia does not cause any symtoms, and no therapy is needed. This is a picture from inside a hiatal hernia.

Hernia hiati

A sliding hiatal hernia does reduce the function of the lower oesophageal sphincter and may delay the clearence of acid from the oesophagus, contributing to reflux disease. Pregancy and obesity increases the intra-abdominal pressure and can be the reason for development of a hiatal hernia. This is a picture from inside a hiatal hernia.

Hernia hiati seen from below

Turning the tip of the gastroscope up inside the stomach gives an excellent view of the fundus- and hiatus-region. In a patient with a sliding hiatal hernia, an opening to the hernia (x) can be seen, and it is easy to understand, that a situation like this can cause reflux to the oesophagus.

In a normal patient (the picture to the right), the cardia region closes tightly around the gastroscope (G).

Hernia hiati

To the left, a hiatal hernia is seen from below, and to the right a reflux oesophagitis, the result of the hernia, is seen.
