para esophageal hernia surgery

Para esophageal Hernia is a type of Hiatus hernia. There are two types of hiatal hernia – the sliding and the Para esophageal hernia. In Para esophageal hernia the stomach protrudes into the chest area and lies near the esophagus while the gastro esophageal junction

remains intact. This damages the tissues due to the lack of proper blood supply.

Patients with this problem will not experience acid reflux; instead will have severe chest pain that does not respond to antacids, indigestion, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting and sometimes will have difficulty in swallowing.

This Para esophageal hernia is a rare form of hernia and takes many years to develop. However, the cause of Para esophageal hernia is still unknown.

In some cases, genetics or sometimes obesity cause this type of hiatal hernia. Alteration in the diet and avoiding the food that cause acid reflux can to some extent curb the problem.

Although these are the symptoms and signs of Para esophageal hernia, this type of hernia is asymptomatic. People generally feel bloating of the stomach after a meal. Abdominal discomfort, gas, pain in the esophagus area, unexplained coughing usually taken lightly could be the sign of this type of hiatal hernia.

When the hernia becomes constricted or strangulated, the doctor suggests a surgery to repair the hernia. The doctor need to take a series of tests to diagnose the problem as the above mentioned symptoms are also related to acidity, heartburn and also to heart disease.

This surgery helps in repositioning the stomach and providing support for the hiatus.An untreated hernia may cause complications like inflammation, obstruction in the bowel movements, internal bleeding and death of tissues to strangulation.

Some complications after the surgery is the reoccurrence of the hernia, failing to succeed in the surgery, causing injury to the nearby tissues and structures and a rare problem of excessive bleeding.

Therefore, it is necessary that the surgery is done under expert and experienced surgeons who can perform the operation successfully.

Most of the patients return to their normal routine within four weeks of the surgery. The diet of the patient should be simple and easily digestible. Doctors recommend mild exercises to build up the muscle strength.

The incision area should be protected during the activities that give abdominal pressure.
