Esophageal eosinophilia (EE) is a basal condition of eosinophilic esophageal disorders including eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and asymptomatic EE. EoE is considered as an allergic disorder, while it is unclear whether other non-allergic conditions are involved in the pathophysiology of EE. The aim of this study is to investigate the non-allergic risk factors for EE.

Background: Obesity and hiatal hernia are both risk factors of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and the incidence of hiatal hernia is much higher in morbidly obese patients. Many b...
The study will examine potential biological and genetic mechanisms leading to hiatal and paraesophageal hernia formation in predisposed individuals. It is expected that these patients wil...

We prospectively studied ninety nine GERD patients following laparoscopic hiatal surgery combined with transoral incisionless fundoplication at two community hospitals. General surgeons an...
STOMACH herniation located at or near the diaphragmatic opening for the ESOPHAGUS, esophageal hiatus. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is above the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a SLIDING HIATAL HERNIA. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is below the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a PARAESOPHAGEAL HIATAL HERNIA.
Mobilization of the lower end of the esophagus and plication of the fundus of the stomach around it (fundic wrapping) in the treatment of GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX that may be associated with various disorders, such as hiatal hernia. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.
