Abstract

Abstract HIATUS hernia is a far more frequent condition than has been generally accepted. It is not a rare thing. It is often overlooked, and the patients are treated for peptic ulcers, disease of the gallbladder or coronary heart disease.

Our experience is probably not unique but goes to prove that once physicians are alerted to the existence of this type of hernia, it will be found much more frequently.
