Gastroesophageal refers to the stomach and esophagus. Reflux means to return or flow back. Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD is a set of conditions, where the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is affected when the contents of the stomach flows back to the esophagus. In usual digestion process, the lower esophageal sphincter unfastens to let food to pass into stomach and shuts to prevent acidic stomach juices and food from going back into the esophagus. Gastroesophageal reflux takes place when the lower esophageal sphincter relaxes inappropriately or is weak, thereby allowing the contents of the stomach to flow up into the esophagus. Many doctors believe that hiatal hernia may wane the lower esophageal sphincter and augment the risk for gastroesophageal reflux. Hiatal hernia takes place when the superior part of the stomach shifts up into the chest by a small opening in the diaphragmatic hiatus or the diaphragm. The diaphragm is the muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen. Recent research shows that the aperture in the diaphragm helps in supporting the anterior end of the esophagus. A lot of people with a hiatal hernia might not have problems with reflux. However, in a hiatal hernia patient, the stomach contents may reflux straightforwardly into the esophagus.
