Unfortunately, in addition to the problematic endoscopic landmark of the mucosal EGJ discussed above, many additional confounding factors, such as hiatal
hernias, respiratory movement, and active or ulcerative esophagitis, make an accurate determination of precise biopsy sites almost impossible.
hernia and GER should be investigated as a potential pathogenetic mechanism in patients with AF resistant to therapy.
Radiologic studies can detect moderate to severe esophagitis, strictures, hiatal
hernias, and tumors.
Coughing, vomiting, straining, or sudden physical exertion can cause increased pressure in the abdomen resulting in hiatal
The radiologist should be aware that a prominent esophageal vestibule can mimic a sliding hiatal

This test doesn't diagnose GERD, but it can diagnose a hiatal
hernia, narrowing of the esophagus or tumors obstructing the esophagus.
and Shah (The Lahey Clinic) make this accessible enough for the general reader but specific enough to serve physicians, defining the disease and giving basic facts, and then going over symptoms and atypical manifestations, the role of hiatal
hernias and lower esophageal sphincters, treatments such as lifestyle changes and diet, complications, medical evaluation, testing, related diseases, medications and surgical interventions.
