LINEAR EROSIONS OF HIATUS HERNIA AND COLUMNAR LINED OESOPHAGUS ARE RARELY FOUND TOGETHER: IMPLICATIONS FOR THE PATHOGENESIS OF CAMERON'S LESIONS OF HIATUS HERNIA
- Globus jugularis and dysphagia in patients with hiatus hernia. Tibbling, L.; Johansson, M.; Mjönes, A. B.; Franzén, T. // European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology;Feb2010, Vol. 267 Issue 2, p251
The aim of the article was to study if there is any relationship between globus sensation in the jugular fossa (GJ), intermittent esophageal dysphagia (IED), and the presence of a hiatus hernia, and if GJ can be relieved after hiatus hernia repair. 167 patients with a hiatus hernia (Group A) and...

- Outcomes of surgical management of symptomatic large recurrent hiatus hernia. Juhasz, Arpad; Sundaram, Abhishek; Hoshino, Masato; Lee, Tommy; Mittal, Sumeet // Surgical Endoscopy;Jun2012, Vol. 26 Issue 6, p1501
Objective: Recurrent hiatus hernia is frequently found in patients undergoing reoperative antireflux surgery. The objective of this study is to report perioperative complications and subjective and objective outcomes for patients who underwent reoperative intervention for symptomatic large...
- ESTIMATED OESOPHAGEAL CLEARANCE, LUMEN DIAMETER, AND GORD. // Gut;Apr2004 Supplement 3, Vol. 53, pA111
Oesophageal clearance is an important mechanism of defence against gastro-oesophageal reftux disease (GORD). The study aims were to investigate the role of oesophageal clearance in patients with GORD and consider the effects of oesophageal lumen diameter and hiatus hernias (HH). Patients with...
- Long-term experience of treating 185 patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) by anti-reflux surgery respecting the functionalâ€“morphological restoration of the esophagus. Horstmann, R.; Classen, C.; Röttgermann, S.; Langer, M.; Palmes, D. // Langenbeck's Archives of Surgery;Feb2006, Vol. 391 Issue 1, p24
Background: According to anatomical investigations the whole esophagus plays a crucial role as reflux barrier in the pathogenesis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Morphologically, the spirally arranged muscle fibres present a tension-dependent â€˜stretch closureâ€™ and in the...

- Severe complication of laparoscopic mesh hiatoplasty for paraesophageal hernia. Zügel, Nico; Lang, Reinhold A.; Kox, Martin; Hüttl, Thomas P. // Surgical Endoscopy;Nov2009, Vol. 23 Issue 11, p2563
Several studies have shown that laparoscopic hernia repair for large paraesophageal hiatal hernia is associated with a high recurrence rate. Therefore, some authors recommend the use of prosthetic meshes. Considering the dynamic area between the esophagus and the diaphragmatic crura with its...
- Measurement of the esophageal hiatus by calculation of the hiatal surface area (HSA). Why, when and how? Granderath, Frank // Surgical Endoscopy;Dec2007, Vol. 21 Issue 12, p2224
The article presents a method to address the problem of hiatal closure and particularly the definition and measurement of the hiatal defect. The author develops a method to define the size of the hiatal defect by calculating the hiatal surface area (HSA). He stresses that this would allow to...
