Left atrial compression and right ventricular outflow tract diameter on echocardiography are independently associated with exercise capacity in patients with large hiatal hernia.

Echocardiography 2018 05;35(5):592-602

Department of Cardiology, Concord Hospital, The University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Introduction: Large hiatal hernia (HH) is often associated with left atrial (LA) compression, anteroposterior cardiac compression (manifesting as reduced right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) diameter), and left ventricular (LV) compression (manifesting as systolic paradoxical outward motion (LV-PM) of the posterobasal LV segment). Exercise impairment, also common in this population, improves following HH surgery. We aimed to identify echocardiographic parameters independently associated with exercise impairment due to HH-mediated cardiogenic compression. Read More

J Thorac Dis 2017 Aug;9(8):E682-E684

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, John Hunter Hospital, New Lambton Heights, New South Wales, Australia.

Hiatal hernias are due to defects in the esophageal hiatus in the diaphragm and can be classified into sliding or paraesophageal hernias. A 31-year-old male raised a suspicion of a Bochdalek hernia but at surgery had a large paraesophageal hernia. Bochdalek hernia, a congenital diaphragmatic hernia presents in adulthood asymptomatically or with vague abdominal symptoms. Read More

"Diagnosis" of a hiatal hernia from a CT coronary artery calcium scan.

Echocardiography 2017 Oct 12;34(10):1515-1518. Epub 2017 Sep 12.

Jefferson Radiology Associates, West Jefferson Medical Center, Marrero, LA, USA.

Identification of a hiatal hernia by computed tomography (CT) scanning, and particularly with axial imaging from a coronary artery calcium score exam, is often subjective. There are several CT features that are diagnostic or at least suggestive of a hiatal hernia. As a hiatal hernia may be the etiology of a chest pain syndrome, it is important to be aware of CT findings suggestive of such. Read More

Endoscopic Evaluation of Post-Fundoplication Anatomy.

Curr Gastroenterol Rep 2017 Aug 24;19(10):51. Epub 2017 Aug 24.

The Oregon Clinic, 4805 NE Glisan St, Suite 6N60, Portland, OR, 97213, USA.

Purpose Of Review: We aim to review the endoscopic evaluation of post-fundoplication anatomy and its role in assessment of fundoplication outcomes and in pre-operative planning for reoperation in failed procedures.

Recent Findings: There is no universally accepted system for evaluating post-fundoplication anatomy endoscopically. However, multiple reports described the usefulness of post-operative endoscopy as a quality control measure and in the evaluation of complex cases such as repeat procedures and paraesophageal hernias (PEH).
