Early axial sliding hiatus hernia (esophagogram)

Discussion:

Early detection of sliding hiatus hernia is one of the main advantages of esophagogram. Trendelenburg position is important for early assessment of reflux and sliding hernia.

The presence of gastric wall above the diaphragm level and a distance of greater than 2 cm between gastric folds and B ring are suggestive findings of early hiatus hernia.
