REFLUX IS MOST OFTEN CAUSED BY A HIATUS HERNIA
In reflux, the stomach contents spill up into the oesophagus, causing heartburn. The acidic gastric juice may cause a severe infection of the oesophagus. This regurgitation is called reflux and is most often due to a hiatus hernia, where the upper part of the stomach pushes up into the chest cavity through an enlarged oesophageal gap.
